Praying in Lent 2017 with USPG,
(13) Friday 10 March 2017

‘Give thanks for the global church as we seek to support one another to live authentic lives in God’

Patrick Comerford

The Lent 2017 edition of the prayer diary of the Anglican mission agency USPG (United Society Partners in the Gospel) follows the theme of the USPG Lent study course, ‘Living an Authentic Life.’

I am using this Prayer Diary for my prayers and reflections each morning throughout Lent. Why not join me in these prayers and reflections, for just a few moments each morning?

In the articles and prayers in the prayer diary, USPG invites us to investigate what it means to be a disciple of Christ. The Lent study course, ‘Living an Authentic Life’ (available online or to order at www.uspg.org.uk/lent), explores the idea that discipleship and authenticity are connected.

This week, from Sunday (5 March) until tomorrow (Saturday, 11 March), the USPG Lent Prayer Diary follows the topic ‘Introducing Discipleship.’ The topic is introduced in the Prayer Diary in an Article by the Revd S Balasundram, a priest in Colombo, Sri Lanka, who is training with the USPG-funded Asian Theological Academy.

Friday 10 March 2017:

Give thanks for the global church as we seek to support one another to live authentic lives in God.

Continued tomorrow
