Passport to Prayer – Lent 2016

Wednesday – Feb. 24, 2016

Psalm 141:1: I call to you, Lord, come quickly to me: hear me when I call to you.  

Sometimes it’s difficult to come up with our own prayer. A good alternative is to use prayers written by other people! There are lots of prayer books available, such as the Book of Common Prayer as well as countless other devotional books. The internet is also a great resource. Simply read or say these prayers aloud. Today’s prayer was written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

I cannot do this alone. O God, early in the morning I cry to you. Help me to pray and to concentrate my thoughts on you; I cannot do this alone. In me there is darkness, but with you there is light. I am lonely, but you do not leave me. I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help. I am restless, but with you there is peace. In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience. I do not understand your ways. But you know the way for me. Restore me to liberty and enable me to live now that I may answer before you and before men. Lord, whatever this day may bring, Your name be praised. Amen.
