A prayer for Holy Week

Crocus One of our Lenten devotional booklets reminded us of the Beatitudes, Matthew 5:1-12. Try using the Beatitudes as a guide for prayer as you prepare for Easter. Here is one idea. Pause after each phrase to visualize what you are saying to God.

I pray for … the poor in spirit … those who mourn … those who are persecuted … the meek and lowly…
Help me to be merciful … a peacemaker … hungry and thirsty for righteousness…
Make me pure in heart … bless me … that I may see God… Amen.
