Lent prayer

Lent prayer By Terry MacArthur

God who crosses the limits and goes where we see only loss, finding glory in the seed with a broken shell, exposed to dirt and greed and yet ready to burst cell upon cell into new beginnings:
encourage in us the removal of the husk, the urge to defend and deny, learning bit by bit to rely on the grace that losing is not necessarily being lost, and loving is worth its cost in Jesus Christ, who crosses all our limits with the cross.
