Prayer for Holy Week

Lord, prepare our hearts for the week to come,
calm our minds in preperation for worship.
Remind us of your unending love,
And free us from the demons of perfection.
Give us the grace to move like water through these days,
Sliding over obstacles and around barriers,
So we may have the energy to run from the tomb
Shouting “Christ has risen!”

  1. Really beautiful Mary Sue. Thank you for saying it.

    Move like water… yes.

  2. Very nice, thank you. The “demons of perfection” often guard the tomb, not wanting it to be opened.
