TEN PRAYERS for LENT

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever. Amen Air Sealed Tent .

 

The Jesus Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

 

A Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

 

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.

 

World Prayer for Peace
For peace in your country
For the victims of violence everywhere
For those struggling for peace and justice
For churches in conflict situations
For a world without war and violence
Lead me from death to life,
from falsehood to truth,
Lead me from despair to hope,
from fear to trust.
Lead me from hate to love,
from anger to peace,
Let peace fill our beings,
our world and our universe. Amen.

A heart of faith, that I may abide in Thee.

 

Prayer of Ignatius of Loyola
Teach us, good Lord,
To serve You as You deserve,
To give and not to count the cost;

To labor and not to ask for any reward,
except that of knowing that we do Your will,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

A Wesleyan Prayer
Lord, make me what You will.

I freely and with a willing heart give it all to Your pleasure and disposal. Amen.
