Saturday Prayer during Lent


Father, look upon our weakness and reach out to help us with your loving power.

My dear father,
I am not asking to overcome my weakness,
but to use it in some way to glorify you.

Let me be aware of
the many ways you reach out to help me today
and let me stand in awe of the power
that you use in such loving ways.

May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
Amen.

FYI: They remind us that Saturdays are lighter and more upbeat than the other days as we are preparing for Sunday. They are reading from Isaiah 58, this continues in particular in Isaiah 58: 9b-14. They are also doing a self-examination regarding what true fasting is for us this Lent.
