Prayers for the Week of February 21, 2021 -- Blessing for the Journey

Updated: Feb 22, 2021






Please join us in the prayers prayed in worship this Sunday, February 21, 2021. This Lenten season, we are embracing the theme "Blessing for the Journey." The prayers below begin with a part of a Franciscan blessing offered in worship. That blessing flows into some questions for reflection, and then the prayers for the morning.


May God bless our prayer, so that we might live deeply and from the hart.


Blessing


May God bless you with discomfort –

at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships –

so that you may live deeply and from the heart.


Questions for Reflection


· What are the easy answers that you are clinging to?

· What are your half-truths? Where does it feel hard and scary to move into the whole truth? The full truth?

· What are your superficial relationships? Those relationships that may be on hold or stagnant until you choose to go deeper? Your relationship with family? Or friends? Or the church? Or the poor?

· In your life, and in our world, what’s going on in the room, that’s not getting said?
