Lent Prayers: Turn Our Eyes to Your Cross

My colleague here at L&B, Jill Woodliff, originally posted this prayer back in March 2006.  I’m not sure whether Jill wrote it, or it may have been contributed by one of our readers.

Dear Jesus,
Our hands are drooping, and our knees are weak.
Founder and Perfecter of our faith, turn our eyes to Your cross.

Help us to always pray and not lose heart.
Founder and Perfecter of our faith, turn our eyes to Your cross.

Step into our fallen flesh and fill our empty spirits.
Founder and Perfecter of our faith, turn our eyes to Your cross.

Lift up our hands and strengthen our knees.
Founder and Perfecter of our faith, turn our eyes to Your cross.

We cry to You day and night.
Founder and Perfecter of our faith, turn our eyes to Your cross.

Bring peace and holiness to the body of Christ.
Founder and Perfecter of our faith, turn our eyes to Your cross.

Do not delay in Your justice.
Luke 18:1-8, Romans 12:2, 12, 13
