A Lenten Prayer


By Andrew Mountin, Director of Music and Liturgy

Fairfield University Campus Ministry


Loving God,


During this Holy Season of Lent,

help us draw nearer to you and to one another.

Especially in these days of illness and distance,

remind us that we are called to love and lift each other up.


As we pray, grant us the grace to trust in you.

Walk with us on this Lenten journey

as we strive to live holy and just lives.


As we fast, instill in us the wisdom to recognize

that our fasting calls us into solidarity 

with those in our community who go without.

Give us the courage to be your presence to all who we encounter,

the conviction to proclaim our faith in troubled times, 

and the compassion to reach out in love to anyone in need.


As we give alms, grant us humble hearts to realize

that all we have comes from others, and ultimately from you.

Remind us to maintain a spirit of gratitude and respect

as we offer up to you all that we give to one another.


Through this Lenten season, let our actions be shaped

by our desire to live more fully the call of discipleship.


Amen.
