A Lenten Prayer for Today

O Lord, you desire truth in our inward being; teach us wisdom in our secret heart.  Send out your light, send out your truth, and let them lead us to our home.  Take from us the weight of our sin, that room might be made for the spirit of truth.  If we prepare a dwelling place, that spirit will abide within us, and the truth will set our spirits free.  Then shall we love not only in word or in speech; then shall we love in deed and in truth, and by this know that our service is faithful.  O Lord, you desire truth in our inward being; teach us wisdom in our secret heart.  Amen.  (The Worship Sourcebook, Lenten Prayer #5)

Friends, believe the good news of the Gospel: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven!

The habit of confessing our sins sets our hearts right to live in community.  Liturgical prayers can help.  If you are leading a missional community or a small group, try incorporating a prayer like the one above in one of your meetings.  It can stimulate healthy reflection and discussion.
