Praying in Lent 2017 with USPG,
(9) Monday 6 March 2017

‘Pray that all Christians around the globe might understand more deeply what it means to be a disciple’

Patrick Comerford

During the Mondays in Lent this year, I am inviting parishioners to the Rectory in Askeaton to join me in studying the Bible readings set out in Bishop Kenneth Kearon’s Lenten Challenge to the Diocese of Limerick and Killaloe.

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 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.

This year we are reflecting on discipleship during our Lenten journey. Pray that all Christians around the globe might understand more deeply what it means to be a disciple.
