MIA Prayer Intention for the Coming Week: Ash Wednesday and Commencement of Lent

'As we begin our Lenten experience, God is waiting to receive us. He already knows the wounds we will bring to the conversation. He already sees where our heart’s light has dimmed. He holds our half-heartedness next to his own heart and yearns to heal us.

Can we hear God’s unique invitation to us in this Lenten season? Can we confidently expose to his gaze the depth of our need for grace and transformation? Can we journey with Christ, though his passion and death, to the wholeness we are called to?'
