A Spiritual Practice for Lent

Trailing clouds of glory do come from God,
who is our home.
Those shadowy recollections,
be they what they may,
are yet the fountain light of all our day.
W. Wordsworth, 1807

All our day God comes to us in prayer, all through the day. As we move through Lent let’s focus on prayer all through the day. Each week you will find a prayer for a different part of the day published here. At Easter you may put them together and frame the whole day in words of prayer. The first two prayers were on first waking and just before launching the day’s activities.

For this week: noon.

It is the centre of the day
- the mid point -
and I stop to remember you,
O God.

May I let my morning activities be
now, and pick up
the energies of the afternoon
with pleasure.
May I remember your presence
in all I do and say,
in all I do and say.

The Rev. Dr. Catherine Faith MacLean
