Prayers for Lent 2024 – Week 4 – Champion

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 4 of Lent, that word is Champion..

Loving God,
We praise and thank you for being our champion. The one who does not give up on us, who encourages, defends, and supports us.
Thank you for sending us your Holy Spirit, who is always with us as our advocate, and through whom we can advocate for others.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

Help us to champion and advocate for the oppressed and downtrodden in our world in the way that is most appropriate and effective for us. May we be mindful of the people of people and situations where our voice and resources are most needed.
Help us also to champion the cause of organisations who are doing vital work in bringing your Kingdom values to fruition.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

Forgive us, Lord, when we are prone to self-promotion and arrogance. For the times when we champion ourselves at the expense of others. Grant us discernment to know when to use our voice, and when to let others speak.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

Thank you, Lord, that the depth of our sin is never enough to stop you from being our champion, and that we have the chance to receive your love and forgiveness afresh today.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.
Amen.
