A Prayer for "Letting Go"
During this time when we have been asked to stay at home and have been taken out of our familiar routines there is a sense of loss. This Lenten prayer addresses what it means to “let go.” May you find this prayer of help and may you find Christ Jesus in the middle of these days.
God, help us to use this season of Lent to examine our attachments, and to sense where You invite us to live more simply and deeply.
Shine the light of Your love into the private corners of our lives where we have acquired so much clutter that it has begun to restrict our freedom.
Grant us the strength to free ourselves from appetites and needs that drive us into taking, having and wanting more than we need or have time for.
Teach us that in letting go we become free, rather than deprived, generous rather than covetous, and spacious rather than restricted.
We offer You our Lenten observance, and today we place our feet on the road to Easter, and walk the Way that You have walked before us. Amen.
