Lenten Prayer – To See With the Eyes of Faith


As we begin our journey into Lent and Easter, let us pray for God to become the subject of our seeing, the One who sees in us. This ability has been given to us through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit into our hearts.
 
Open us, O Holy Spirit of God. Be yeast in us.
Let our hearts expand to take in more and more of
God’s lavish self-disclosures.
 
Clear away the blocks that hinder us
from seeing you in the events of our past.
Stir up hope in us, O Holy Spirit,
our refuge and our stronghold.
You bear us up in mercy and go before us always
to deliver us from evil’s way.
 
Lead us, gently but persistently,
O loving Spirit of God,
toward those people, places, and events
where you desire most to meet us.
Then, in those choices that invite or confront us,
direct us to choose only those things
that are for the Father’s glory,
and reign in our hearts and in our world.
We pray this in the name of Jesus,
our teacher, brother, and Lord. Amen
