Prayers for Lent 2024 – Week 6 – Nothing

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 the final week of Lent, that word is Nothing.

Lord of all,
Thank you that you invite us to rest. Thank you for weaving sabbath into the very fabric of creation, and for making us lie down in green pastures. Thank you that we do not have to do everything.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

Save us, Lord, from thinking that everything relies on us and our efforts. Help us to trust in your Spirit’s guidance, not only our own experience or analysis. Spur us to action where it is needed, and lead us to rest when it is not.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

We are sorry for the times when we have done too much. Where we have made ourselves burnt out. Or where we have been doing things that would be better left to others. Help us have the courage to know when to step back, as well as when to step up.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

Thank you, God, that you hold all of creation in your hand. That while you choose to involve us in the building of your Kingdom, the ultimate work of reconciliation is already achieved for us by your Son. May we rest in what has already been achieved for us and the world.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.
Amen.
