40 Prayers for Lent, 40 Days, 40 Words – Day 25: Shame

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.

Shame

For the times when I hear, from myself or others –

“You are not doing enough.”

“You are not loyal enough.”

“You are not achieving enough.”

God, give me patience to not respond with immediate acceptance, but with thoughtful discernment.

Amen

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