Lenten Meditation: Prayer for Reflection

Updated: Feb 18

Every year during Lent the Spiritual Life Commission of Christ Episcopal Church compiles and publishes a Lenten Meditation Book, containing submissions from our parish family that are intended to inspire, encourage reflection, and spark action in our community and the world. These meditations range from poems and quotes to Bible verses and prayers, as well as songs, personal reflections, and inspirational passages from well-known theologians or authors. Our LMB also includes a Daily Office for the Lenten season. If you're nearby, you can grab a printed copy of our LMB at Christ Church while supplies last, or you can visit us here each day, as we'll post one meditation each weekday. You can also check our social media outlets; simply click the links in this post, or bookmark the icons at the top of this page.


We hope that you enjoy and appreciate these meditations, as they reflect our varied and vibrant Christ Church family. We're pleased to be able to share them with you.



Prayer for Reflection


Dear Lord, 2021 has started off with so much uncertainty, so much loss, and so many struggles. Right now, things seem bleak and for many doubt is trying to take root. During this time we pray that our eyes, our hearts, and our minds remain open and searching for your light, your grace, and hope. Help us to not only be Christ-like as we rebuild but, to also be the seekers and finders of light in the darkness.

Amen.
