As I am journeying through a Lenten devotional based on the Book of Common Prayer I am finding each morning that the written prayer begins and ends with these words:
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
I wonder what you, personally, need to write on that line today. It may be a confession or an acknowledgement that you have come to the end of your resources. It may be a plea of intercession for someone for whom your heart is breaking. It may be a desire to thank God for who he is and express gratitude for what he has done.
All of this is content for prayer this week.
What a comfort to know that each of our prayers can begin with O God and end with the assurance that we are praying through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
