Lent prayers from all of us @MANNABBQGRILLS........
Almighty and ever living God, 
you invite us deeper into your world, your people, your Lent.
May this time be one of outward focus;
seeking you in those we often ignore. 
Help us live a Lent focused on freedom, generosity, and encounter. 
Give us hearts hungry to serve you
and those who need what we have to give.
While fasting with the body,
brothers and sisters,
let us also fast in spirit.
Let us lose every bond of iniquity;
let us undo the knots of every contact made by violence;
let us tear up all unjust agreements;
let us give bread to the hungry
and welcome to our house
the poor who have no roof to cover them,
that we may receive mercy from Christ our God.

And lastly, let us put our darling country (Nigeria) in prayers.
May God answer our prayers in this month of Lent.
Prayers going up..........

Alexaonfleek:

God bless you Alexa.

May God answer your heart desires this lent period.
Stevewonder004:

Judas Iscariot was a disciple and one of the original Twelve Disciples of Jesus Christ. According to all four canonical gospels, Judas betrayed Jesus to the Sanhedrin in the Garden of Gethsemane by kissing him and addressing him as "rabbi" to reveal his identity to the crowd who had come to arrest him. So who are responsible for Crucifixion Jesus? Any i-pots members to answer my question..

The funny thing is that, most people that plan to fast and pray till the end, will probably end up doing nothing, giving one excuse or the other..

May God help us to go according to his way this lent season.. Amen!

Dust to dust. We were made from dust, and unto dust we shall return.

Time to abstain from fornication, smoking and drinking. Give alms, fast and pray.

Remember to put on your black when attending Mass today. We are mourning our brothers and sisters, killed by Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen in the north!

As today begins the the Lent, let us all join hand together and pray for Nigeria and Nigerians who are going through difficult time.


Please add your prayers to remind all Christian faithful that this season of lent should be a time to remind ourselves that, we need each other to survive in difficult times.

Wishing all Catholic and Christians world wide and our Nairaland faithful successful Lent.

Time to fast and come into shape, burning up excess fat in the process and releasing toxins stored therein so they can then get excreted.

Time to pray and read more of the Bible

Time to pray for the kingdom of GOD to come.

Okay anyways.
Do have a nice day ahead kid bro! wink

I don't have strength to attend the ash Wednesday mass. I will just mix some ash with oil, pray and draw a cross on my forehead. Ash is ash.
But you have time to spend hours on Nairaland today and to watch Champions league and other irrelevant things

We pray God touches your soul before the end of mass today.
May God grant your heart desires.
Stay blessed English boy! wink

Lord we need you most in Nigeria today. May this Lenten season unite us more because we are more divided than we can ever think. May we know that Igbo, Hausa, Fulani, Yoruba, Efik etc are one body in Christ Jesus. May we humble ourselves and take every tribe in Nigeria as human. May we kill the tribal animosity which have eaten deep into our souls. We pray for the victims of Boko Haram, herdsmen, SARS, and other violent group that have caused tears in the eyes of many families, that they may find comfort in Christ. We ask God for His Mercy and forgiveness in Nigeria, and pray that He may bless us with Good leaders that will have the interest of the masses in their heart. All this we ask Through same Christ Our Lord. Amen
