Prayer for Lent – April 20

Loving Father, we come to you at this time of crisis unsure of what is going on in our world.
Help us, as anxious as we are, with all the fears and worries that we have, to lay those troubles at the foot of the cross.
Let us live in the present, dependent on you, knowing that you will not fail us.
We pray this in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, Amen.

Lord, in this time of Lent, when our world has been turned upside down, help us to reflect on your journey towards Jerusalem.
Help us to really hear your message to feed the hungry, comfort the bereaved, visit the prisoners and let the oppressed go free.
Help us to focus on what we can do rather than what we cannot and help us to be inventive in ways we can help.
Hear this prayer in the name of your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen
