6 Prayers for Meetings During Lent

Lamentations 3:40, Galatians 6:3-4
Dear God, we thank You for the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord. In this period of lent, (6 weeks prior to Easter) help us to continue to reflect on your death, suffering and resurrection. During this meeting, we ask that you will give us instruction; teach us to repent and to examine ourselves because Your Word says, “let us examine and probe our ways”. So, bless this meeting we pray, Amen.

John 10:18
Dear Father I thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ, who portrayed a genuine and perfect sacrifice by giving up His life for our sins. Therefore, we pray that our personal sacrifices will be genuine unto God. So, during this lent period, we willingly lay down those things which clutter our lives and prevent us from being in a deeper relationship with You. Bless us we pray, Amen.

John 3:16
Heavenly Father, we bless You for this lent period and meeting which reminds us of Your sacrifice and our need to demonstrate humility. So, as we meet together in this lent season, teach us Your perfect humility. Your love for us is beyond limits as You demonstrated this upon the cross. So Father, we thank You for Your Word that reminds us that “for God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.”

Hebrews 10:5,7
Dear God, Your Word declares that, when You came into the world You said sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a body You have prepared for me. Behold, You have come! As we reflect on this Word, during this lent meeting, we thank You for coming into this world and preparing Your son Jesus Christ for us, this we pray, Amen.

Luke 9:23, Romans 6:6
Dear Father, if anyone wishes to come after You, we must deny ourselves and take up our cross and follow You. During this lent meeting, help me Lord to become selfless and more attentive to Your ways. Draw me closer to You and guide me into all truth. I pray that my old self will be crucified with You, so that my body of sin might be done away with, so that I will no longer be a slave to sin. Thank You Father, Amen.

Galatians 5:24, Psalm 51:10
Dear Father, in this season of lent, help me to crucify the flesh, it’s passions and desires. I am not always willing to do your will but help me to surrender myself totally committed to You. Help me in this lent period to open up my heart so that Your Holy Spirit can guide and teach me. So Lord, create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me. Help us in this lent meeting, to be filled with Your Love, sacrifice and praise; Father we pray, Amen.
