Lenten Devotional: Week Three

Welcome to the third week of this Lenten journey! For this Lenten season I have put together a weekly series of devotionals from the Songs and Prayers of the Taizé community. Each devotional in the series will include a Psalm, Songs from Taizé, a picture of the cross that I hoped will aid in your reflection time, Intercessions and a prayer.   If you have just joined us and want to start from the beginning here's week one followed by week two.


So take a minute to reflect on this week's message.

Psalm   from Psalm 51

Indeed you love truth in the heart;
then in the secret of my heart teach me wisdom.
O purify me, then I shall be clean;
O wash me, I shall be whiter than snow.

A pure heart create for me, O God,
put a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence,
nor deprive me of your holy spirit.

Intercessions

O Christ, you offer us healing; may we live by your life.
O Christ, you renew our hope; may we live by your life.
O Christ, you sat at table with sinners; may we live by your life.
O Christ, you raised up your friend Lazarus; may we live by your life.
O Christ, you forgave Peter when he repudiated you and you called him to follow you; may we live by your life.
O Christ, in you our resurrection has already begun; may we live by your life.

 

Prayer

Bless us, Christ Jesus; you love us always, even in our night.  Amen
