Lent

Praying together forTomorrow

Lent is a wonderful time for reflection, action and going deeper in our faith and understanding of God’s heart for justice. TEAR has commissioned a series of seven prayers, created by different authors and transformed into beautiful artwork that you can share with your church, friends or family. Join in the season of lent as we explore prayerful responses to poverty in today’s world.

Prayer 6

Prayer by Lilian Charles, Coordinator (Primary Education Project), the Diocese of Hyderabad, Pakistan.

PEP is a TEAR Australia supported project.

Lord, May this season of Lent allow God’s light to shine unhindered through our life so the darkness around us is dispelled. Grant us the wisdom and perseverance to be light and salt for your people.

May we, as His disciples, be the agents of justice among His creation.

On earth as it is in heaven.

Amen

Reflection

The world was never the same once the Father introduced His light through His Son. Can that be said of us as well? Do our co-workers recognise the light that is within us? Does the presence of Christ radiate from our home into our community?

May we shine as a brilliant testimony of his presence and power in our life so that the darkness in the lives of those around us will be displaced by the light of God’s glory. Being a light is not a choice but a responsibility and a calling. How awesome is it to be the ones through whom God would shine his divine light and dispel the darkness from around others!

Give

You can make a contribution to work that improves the health and well-being of women facing poverty through TEAR Australia and our partners.

Lent Week 6

TEAR’s partner Oasis in Mozambique is working alongside the local church to improve the health and well-being of women in their communities. “Care groups” of local women are learning about important health and hygiene messages. They’re becoming health activists in their communities, sharing what they’ve learnt with others and sparking change.
