Prayer for the Lenten Journey
Lord, be with me during my Lenten journey.
Let me be honest with myself, let me see everything that is wrong with my soul and my heart and admit my shortcomings and sins.

Lord, show me what I should change in my life and please fill my heart with patience, gratitude, and peace.
Please teach me to accept others and show my love to them.

Heavenly Father, please give me the strength to keep my promises and to get closer to you through prayers and good works.
In the name of Jesus. Amen.

Lenten Wilderness Space – Week 1
The Lenten Journey: (1st Sunday / Week of Lent)

This area (see photo below) represents the desert.

Traditionally in the Bible the desert is seen as a place of disorder and chaos.
Each of us comes to Lent with our own disorder and chaos.

We ask the Lord through our Lenten promises to focus our minds so our own deserts will change and blossom.

Lenten Wilderness Space – Week 2
The Lenten Journey: (2nd Sunday / Week of Lent)

Cactus appears in our Lenten Wilderness space.

As each of us makes our way through Lent green shoots of positive change rise up within us as a result of our Lenten promises. 

Change is always difficult.  The Cactus symbolises the sparse nature of this change at first and how thorny it can feel. 
Nevertheless we journey on in trust.
