Prayers for Lent 2024 – Week 2 – Commit

During Lent, All We Can are inviting people to ask the question ‘What is Mine to Do?’ Recognising that discerning where our voice and actions are most needed is a key part of justice-seeking. Each week, they are focussing on one word which represents one possible answer to that question. In Week 2 of Lent, that word is Commit.

Loving God,
Thank you that we are able to commit to serving you because you first showed love and commitment towards us. Making the ultimate commitment of dwelling among us in order to save us.
In this Lenten season, we remember your period of discernment and preparation in the desert, which was vital for the ministry that followed. May we also allow ample time for discernment in our journey of faith.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

Father we are sorry for the times we have offered a half-hearted commitment to you, and your desire for us to challenge injustice. We acknowledge that sometimes we let barriers get in the way of our commitment to you and the work you might do through us. Help us to break down these barriers.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

Lord, when there is so much injustice, and so many charities and movements trying to tackle it, it can feel easy to dip our toes in – to show low commitment in a lot of places rather than full commitment in a few.
This Lent, help us to identify where our particular passions, knowledge, and skills are best put to work for your Kingdom. Help us to lay down things that are good, but are simply not ours to do. Help us to fully commit to the areas where we can have the most impact.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

Remind us that even though commitment can inspire fear and trepidation, that no step towards you goes unmatched by your supporting hand alongside us.
Comfort our fears. Excite our minds and hearts. Nudge us in the right direction.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.
Amen.
