Lord Jesus, to be your disciple is to be without an insurance policy.

You ask me to abandon a life that lives for bread alone.

I sometimes doubt if there is any other.

The challenge of your gospel intimidates me.

Your courageous defiance of evil,

your fierce integrity,

challenge my complacency.

You have drawn me into your Lent are making me afraid.

Give me the courage to follow you.

  1. A prayer that I think represents us all. One to say all through out the day EVERYDAY.

    • Agreed.

      Now I am in the process of entering prayers for every day of Lent, having entered prayers for the Sundays of Epiphany season. I was fortunate to find a certain Thomas Merton-themed Lenten devotional book during a visit to a thrift store.
