A Schools Morning Prayers for Lent 1

Song:  Like the deer that yearns for running streams,
so my soul is thirsting for you.
Like the deer that yearns for running streams,
so my soul is thirsting, so my soul is thirsting.

 

 

Let us pray

Father of us all,
As we celebrate Lent
we thank you for all you give us
and we offer you this day with generous hearts
through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

 

Short Reading   Deuteronomy 7: 6, 8-9

It is you that the Lord our God has chosen to be his very own people out of all the peoples on the earth.
Know then that the Lord your God is God indeed,
the faithful God who is true to his covenant and his graciousness for a thousand generations
towards those who love him and keep his commandments.

 

Intercessions
We pray that we may so love our families and friends
that we pray for them each day of Lent. Lord, hear us

We pray that during Lent
we may be able to do without something
and be able to offer it to God. Lord, hear us

We pray that being aware of the needs of others
we may be generous to them. Lord, hear us

Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation But deliver us from evil

 

Let us pray

Lord,

During Lent
Let us find the strength we need
To live up to the dignity you have given us
As your children,
And to support others when they need our help.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen

Blessing: May the Lord bless us, and keep us from all harm,
and may he lead us to eternal life.
