Story

3 nights to go, please join me again for a prayer.

Loving God,

you called your Son, Jesus to face the suffering and hardship of the cross. 

In following your Son, you call us to face suffering and hardship for the sake of the good news.

Help us to carry our cross with courage as we walk alongside others

filled with hope that our self-denial will lead to the joy of the resurrection. 

Amen

Halfway there, please join me for a prayer.

Heavenly God,

your Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness where he experienced need and temptation.

May your same Spirit drive us out of our places of comfort

and wake us up to the needs of those who suffer in destitution through debt and neglect.

Move us to be compassionate and willing to sacrifice our wants

and to be generous in sharing ourselves and our resources,

so as to satisfy the needs of others.

Amen

I am 9 years old, I have given up my bed for lent and will be sleeping in a in box.

I have chosen to raise awareness and hopefully lots of money for the Children's Society because they will be able to help more children have a better life as I am fortunate to have a lovely home and happy life.
