Remember that you are dust

Lenten Prayers

Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the earth: Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.

Rest

Jesus, I am stressed.
Help me to accept your invitation to come and receive the rest I need.
Help me to willingly release my fear, my worries, my agenda and my to-do list.
Ease the tension and replenish my body.
Silence the voices of doubt and speak your words of truth.
Remove the heaviness of my day and pour out abundantly into my life.
Fill me with your peace, joy and love.
Fill me until the overwhelm is consumed by your grace and my life reflects the beauty of resting in you.
Amen.

Remember

Loving God, we thank you for your love and protection. We pray for all those who continue to suffer due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Dear Lord, only you can save us.

We pray for doctors, government workers and health professionals, that they take appropriate steps for the good of the people.

We pray for all scientists who are working to develop more effective and safe vaccines to combat this virus.

We pray for gig and hourly workers who must work despite dangerous conditions.

We pray for all loved ones who have died. May light perpetual shine upon them and may they may they find eternal peace in your kingdom.

We pray for all those who have had someone close to them die. May you wrap your arms around them and ease their pain of loss.

We commit the whole world, especially those affected by COVID-19, into your hands.

We ask this prayer in Jesus name. Amen.
