A Lent Prayer
In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
John 14 : 2-3
We give thanks for our many blessings, for homes and gardens, for food, warmth and clothing. We know how fortunate we are to be part of a community, with people to support us. We give thanks for your promises Lord, that you assure us of our place with you. We invite you to dwell in us now, through your spirit, reassuring us, teaching us, guiding us, challenging us to be more like you.
We rejoice that you prepare a place for us in the next life, a life where we will live in fullness and joy with you, for ever.
