Lenten Reflection

Lent

 

To celebrate and recognise this Holy time of Lent, we have been discovering Jesus’ journey through the desert.

“We give up things because Jesus gave himself up for our sins.”

“I am going to help my Mammy more to make God happy.”

 

What are you going to do this Lent to help you grow closer to God?

 

Why not talk about it with your family at home? You could share your Lenten promise with them. we have found a lovely prayer you could share together. 

 

I Will Turn

Lord, I will turn,
Turn my face towards you.
I will lay before you the desert areas I hide
And turn to soak in your refreshing words of life.
I will cast aside the barren, selfish pursuits
And turn to rest in the tranquil warmth of your love.
I will draw back from the harsh pull of media
And turn to bathe in the gentle power of your Spirit.
Lord, today I turn my face towards you.

I will turn
To soak in your words of life,
To rest in the warmth of your love,
And to bathe in the power of your Spirit.
