Our Lenten Journey 2023

This is a season of reflection; a time of repentance, preparation, prayer and fasting. An opportunity to focus our sights on true discipleship and becoming who God created us to be in the midst of being our most real and authentic selves.

Day 2 

As you begin this journey of prayer and seeking a deeper relationship with God, you may be uncertain as to where you to begin. Praying this prayer wherever you are in this journey of faith is never a bad place to start.



Here and now, I confess my sins and failures to You and I am heartfully sorry for having sinned against You.

Grant me the strength to seek and accept Your forgiveness.

Lord Jesus, on the cross on Calvary, You poured Yourself  out completely for me and I claim that wonderful and indescribable gift of salvation.

Lord, create a clean heart in me.

Transform me and renew me in every way; mind, body and spirit.

Be the Lord of my life and guide me in Your ways everlasting.

I consecrate myself to You Lord and ask that You use me according to Your Holy Will.

I pray in the name of Jesus.



This passage from the book of Daniel is one source for the idea of a praying and fasting. Both prayer and fasting are biblical and were the first step in seeking God's guidance. 

Jesus, right after being baptised by John, went out to the wilderness to spend time alone with God the Father. It would be essential to Jesus' earthly ministry and to the furture of humanity; showing us what obedience to the Will of the Father looks like.

As you set apart these coming weeks in preparation for Easter to seek God, know that God has already heard your prayer. He is already at work in your life and on your behalf. What specific clarity of vision are you seeking from God during these 40 days? There will be days of peace and days of conflict and chaos, but know that God allows both to hone your ability to listen more intentionally and intensly. 

Spend time in prayer throughout the day today so that you may hear what it is God is trying to say to you. As He speaks to you, He will give you strength and peace in this faith journey.
