Lenten Prayers for the Week
Loving Creator, I know in your great love for me,  you see the deep sorrow in my heart.  Hear my prayers which are offered  with such trust in you.
Be with me in both mind and heart  as I renew my life in your spirit.

Lord, all I want is to be faithful to you in my life,  but so often I fail.  Free me from my many sins  and guide me to the life I will share with you.  I wait for your promise to be fulfilled  with great hope in my heart  and your praise on my lips.

Most forgiving Lord, again and again you welcome me back into your loving arms.  Grant me freedom from the heavy burdens of sin  that weigh me down  and keep me so far from you.

Loving God, Your eternal watchfulness keeps me safe from harm. I am filled with a great happiness when I feel your endless love for me. Thank you for your care for me, one of your children. I ask you to protect from harm those who will soon be your children, joined in the joy of your church. Please continue to pour out your blessings on all of us who have been given the lifegiving waters of baptism.

Loving God, I am just beginning to realize how much you love me.  Your son, Jesus was humble and obedient.  He fulfilled your will for him by becoming human and suffering with us.  I ask you for the desire to become more humble  so that my own life might also bear witness to you.  I want to use the small sufferings I have in this world  to give you glory.

Please, Lord, guide my mind with your truth.  Strengthen my life by the example of Jesus.  Help me to be with Jesus in this week  as he demonstrates again his total love for me.  He died so that I would no longer  be separated from you.  Help me to feel how close you are  and to live in union with you.

God of love, My prayer is simple: Your son, Jesus, suffered and died for me. I know only that I cannot have real strength unless I rely on you. I cannot feel protected from my many weaknesses until I turn to you for forgiveness and your unalterable love. Help me to share this strength, protection and love with others.

God of such unwavering love, how do I "celebrate" the passion and death of Jesus? I often want to look the other way and not watch, not stay with Jesus in his suffering. Give me the strength to see his love with honesty and compassion and to feel deeply your own forgiveness and mercy for me. Help me to understand how to "celebrate" this week. I want be able to bring my weaknesses and imperfections with me as I journey with Jesus this week, so aware of his love.
