God of life, as we journey through the Lenten season, make us ever aware of our calling to follow where
Jesus leads us by a life of self-denial
and cross-bearing. Help us to walk with you Jesus as you reveal yourself to us
through the sufferings of the poor, sick, forgotten, lost, last and least in
our midst and around the globe. For it is in losing life for your sake and the
sake of the gospel that we gain real, lasting and abundant life; through Jesus
the cross-bearing Messiah. Amen.
