Song as Prayer: Lenten Devotions
Tuesday, April 12
As we journey through Lent as a community, our fasting and prayers have also reminded us of the people in our world who do not have enough. Rather than the smooth, cool path we may have hoped to experience with Lent, we have been faced with decision makers tempted to balance the budget on the backs of the most vulnerable.
In the face of struggle and uncertainty, let this moment be a time to celebrate the thousands of people who have united in a call for justice through prayer and fasting, as well as a time of prayer for our decision makers.
Read or sing the following stanza several times in prayer. Taken from the Taizé community in France, this meditative singing becomes a way of listening to God.
The kingdom of God is justice and peace
And joy in the Holy Spirit.
Come, Lord, and open in us,
The gates of your kingdom.
Sarah Rohrer is North Central field organizer for Bread for the World.
