First Sunday of Lent:
“In this season of Lent, we’re reminded of our own difficulties and struggles.
Sometimes the way has seemed too dark.
Sometimes we feel like our lives have been marked by such grief and pain, we don’t see how our circumstances can ever change.
Lord, rise up within us, let your Spirit shine out of every broken place we’ve walked through.
Trade the ashes of our lives for the beauty of your Presence.
Trade our mourning and grief for the oil of joy and gladness from your Spirit.
Trade our despair for hope and praise.”
