40 Short Prayers for Lent 2022

40 Short Prayers for Lent 2022 February 26, 2022

Not my will, but your will be done, O’ God.

Could you offer this prayer? Jesus could. And did (Matthew 26:39). This line is the seed that sprouts into a harvest of healthy praying. After this offering, every thing else we say in prayer is but a twig or a branch. [Gethsemane Prayer by Eman Allam]

Why should prayers be short? Here’s you answer: Short Prayers? Really?

A Short Prayer for Each Day of Lent 2022

From Cross to Crown. An inescapable tension. In the Good Friday cross of Jesus we see how hostile to God the human race has become. But on Easter Sunday God raises Jesus from the dead and crowns him King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Christ’s crown announces the forgiveness of our sin and the redemption of all things in creation.

Ash Wednesday marks the first of forty days of discipline and devotion, as we meditate on what happened and thank God for divine grace in our lives. This 2022 Lenten season I recommend you engage with one Short Prayer per day, six days per week, until Easter.

Just click, read, meditate, and pray.
