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 today (Saturday 11 March), the USPG Lent Prayer Diary follows the topic ‘Introducing Discipleship.’ The topic was introduced last Sunday in an article in the Prayer Diary by the Revd S Balasundram, a priest in Colombo, Sri Lanka, who is training with the USPG-funded Asian Theological Academy.

Saturday 11 March 2017:

Pray for Christians in Sri Lanka and around the world as we seek to live in the reviving power of the Holy Spirit.
