A season of prayer; Day 33

A Prayer for Lent

Dear God, the One from whom all blessing flow. You are the Father of Light and in you there is no darkness, rather darkness becomes overwhelmed in your presence. Good and gracious God, the One who forgives my iniquities and remembers them no more, I bless and honour your name. A new day, a new opportunity to show yourself strong and mighty, you are my Rock, my shield, my exceedingly great reward. Do as you will do and let your name be glorified through my existence in Jesus name.

Daddy,I bless you for today marks the beginning of Lent. A period where people for 40 days and 40 nights practice self denial and discipline. Thank you I am alive to witness lent in 2009, thank you for the grace to participate in Lent this year. Dear God, I pray for myself and any others who will participate for strength. Already, I am experiencing withdrawal symptoms just thinking about cake and bread. I never knew the love was this strong o! Lol! In tesco, they were just calling me...and today being the first day! Help me to be strong, remind me O Lord that Lent is not just about giving up stuff but giving up for, giving up some TV programmes for having more time to spend in your word and prayer, giving up some things that I like for remembering others in their time of need.

In this season O Lord, help me not to walk in the flesh but to fulfill the desires of the Spirit, let this be a season of pure thoughts and speech. Help me to see things as they truly are, guide me in the steps that I take. Like silver that goes through the fire, purify me O Lord in this season, let all those things that do not give you glory rise to the top like dross and be skimmed out of my life.

Father, I do not pray to fall but I may, I ask for the grace to stand up, shake off the dust and keep walking. A righteous man may fall seven times but your Word has promised that you will always deliver me. Thank You Father for in this season we shall see you in a new way. Reveal more of you, help us to grow in you. Thank you Father, thank you Lord in Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe him and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the LORD will answer;you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I Isaiah 58:6-9
