Today’s Lenten prayers are by my friend John Birch who writes beautiful contemporary Celtic prayers and liturgies which are available through his website: Faith and Worship.

Make me a tree, Lord
Deep rooted
To those in need,
To those who are weary,
For those who hunger.
Make me a tree, Lord
Deep rooted

For the promise of harvest
contained within a seed
we thank you.
For the oak tree
within an acorn,
the bread
within a grain,
the apple
within a pip,
the mystery of nature,
gift wrapped
for us to sow,
we thank you.
