Prayers for Lent 5A

 

Prayer of Adoration

Heavenly Father,

Source of life of every living thing;

from the smallest flower,

to the largest mammal,

everything that lives gives you praise.

The grasses and tree tops

wave offerings to your glory,

sea turtles and pelicans

glide with effortless joy,

dogs and cats nap and play,

men and women

burst into song at the wonder of life

and the mystery of living.

O God, giver of life,

we love you,

and we know that you love us;

in the name of the Father

and of the Son,

and of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever. Amen.

 

 

Prayer for Illumination

Send now, O Lord,

your Spirit, your Breath, your Wind

into every corner of our beings,

into dark, closed off rooms,

into places that smell of death,

send us your Word, O Lord,

that we might come to life

and breath new air;

suspend our disbelief,

that we may receive your word

and live,

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
