Praying for Strangers
A Lenten Journey
Lent is a good season for cloistering our souls for introspection. For considering what we have done, and what we have left undone. For considering the life and death and resurrection of our Lord and seeking ways to have the illumination of his truth guide us not only for this season but also for our lives. Many of us are content with Lent. Content with the quietness of it, the seriousness and the solitude of it. For others that slowing down of the spirit in the middle of life’s demands seems quiet the impossible task.
Regardless of which ‘type’ we might be, there is a place in God that is deeper and quieter still than we have gone before. It calls to us and waits for us to find it. This Lenten season don’t simply replay where you’ve been before with God or pull out your rote sacrificial list of things you love that you will abstain from. They become an easy practice. Bathe yourself in quiet and then ask God what he would have you focus on in this time of introspection. In this season may we seek to be more like the one who calls us and less like ourselves.
