A prayer for Shrove Tuesday
God, may this food we share give us strength
to survive in the tough times:
may we walk on into Lent ready to face
whatever comes our way.
God, may we never forget all those in the world
who are hungry (our sisters and brothers in …).
God, give us hunger for justice –
and for more of your good stuff!
God, as we eat these pancakes,
help us to remember that it’s the mix and variety
that makes life really interesting –
different people, different experiences, different views …
So help us to choose our pancake toppings with
a spirit of adventure,
experimentation and fun.
