Praying During Lent
Lord Jesus Christ we worship you today.
You who are a king like no other,
We give you praise.
Born as a human child,
Raised as a refugee,
Friend of prostitutes and the marginalized.
Not seeking power and privilege,
but willing to walk the path of suffering,
To die the death of shame,
Upon a cross, crowned with thorns.
A servant king washing feet, embracing kids,
A loving God,
holding close when we stumble,
A caring and forgiving saviour,
Transforming, renewing, making all things whole,
We stand in awe of you
And give you thanks.
