People often think that because we are in Lent we should be solemn and quiet and while this is the classical view of Lent – underpinning this is an aspect of prayer known as worship.
Worship can be spoken about in many different ways and one of those ways is that of gratefulness.
My mentors taught me at the beginning of my daily personal prayer to get a right “perspective” of God. We start off by saying something like, “God you made the universe and I am made by you. You are unlimited but I am limited. You are the creator but I am created by you. God you see all things but I can only see what is before me.”
In other words, “God you are amazing and glorious.”
Through Lent as we do this, the mystery of God becoming a human being and suffering for us out of love on the cross takes on a far richer understanding.
ACTION: Write a list of phrases that you can say to God that puts yourself in right perspective to God.
