Keep Us From Evil

The Lenten Season is where we choose to orient our hearts towards God. It’s that time spent in preparation for Easter, which then flows into Pentecost. Sadly, many churches have dropped off their Lenten preparation completely. Instead, Christmas is celebrated before it starts; Advent is skipped and Easter, well it just …arrives.  So I’m continuing to advocate for the restoration and the practice of Lent - letting the weeks leading up to Easter better prepare us for the majesty that is Resurrection Sunday. This year I want Lent to reminds us to reflect, to meditate, to fast and to be silent orienting our heart towards God while reconnecting us with the experiences of fellow Christians around the world now and in our past. 
Pray: Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through JesusChrist our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the HolySpirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
