Prayer for the First Sunday in Lent

Blessed God, the bread of life,
who feeds us with the spiritual food of your Son:
grant that this our wilderness journey,
undertaken to remind us that our lives
draw nurture from more than bread alone,
may send our roots deep into the loam of your love,
that we, blossoming into abundant life
through the nourishment of the Holy Spirit,
might share the feast of love together,
one people as you are One God. Amen.

  1. Thank you for this, Jason. (And more to come, I hope.)

  2. I love Lent. And this post. Thanks, Jason.

  3. Chris: not every day, like last year, but every Sunday during Lent, and I’ll try for more during Holy Week.

  4. Allan Garber says:

    I joined the LDS church to get away from Lent, Ash Wednesday and all of that.

  5. Perhaps we might arrive at an arrangement whereby I allow you the privilege of worshiping according to the dictates of your own conscience, and you allow me the same.
