Still not giving up Social Media for Lent.

While some choose to give something up for lent, as I did in 2013, in 2014 I will again take on a discipline. This year, because my prayer life has been less than spectacular as of late, during this season I am offering 40 prayers for Lent (whatever hits me each morning) along with a video or some other resource. All prayers can be found [here] and few more Lenten resources at the end of this post.

Compassion

When I see struggle and respond with blame
God, forgive me

When I see suffering and fail to ask “Why?”
God, forgive me

When I fail to see every human being as loved, created and holy
God, forgive me

Amen

Today’s video comes from Pharrell Williams and Happy. Take note of the different people who show up in the videos: size, color, age . . . and dance ability ;-)

See all of my 2014 Lenten prayers here and here is a good Lent 101 article from my denomination, the Presbyterian Church (USA).
