“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
(Matthew 6: 9-13)
The Season of Lent. For Christians around the world, Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and self-denial. It is a time reflective of Jesus in the wilderness, fasting for forty days and nights while being tempted and resisting temptation. After a year of restriction, I am sure many of us will feel that so much has been given up already, even to consider denying ourselves anything. As a nation, our spirits are lifting with the progress of the vaccinations, and the hope of being able to gather with our families and friends soon. What joy that will be to us! Before that time comes however, we still have a journey to make to see us safely to that joy. I am mindful of the Lord’s Prayer this Lent, said every day by millions worldwide and of being among the voice’s that pray, for daily nourishment, forgiveness and relief from temptation. My prayer for the villages I serve this Lent, is that we will all receive the nourishment we need and the Joy of Easter to come.
Lent on Zoom, Thursday afternoons 2.30 - 3pm, begins 25th February. Join us for half an hour of prayer and reflection on zoom. We reflect on selected “I am” sayings of Jesus.
