Praying for our newspeople:
We begin our Lenten journey by praying for ourselves.
God, I come to you in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Today I pray for myself. May I seek the truth with justice and charity, and may I report the truth to others with honesty and integrity. May my voice rouse those around me to hope in the power of Your love and to greater prayer for peace and charity in our world, specifically that Your kingdom come and Your will be done on our earth as it is in heaven. Amen.
