Ask Jesus to Unbind

Prayer Meditation for the Fifth Sunday in Lent

Today’s Gospel gives us one of the most engaging pictures of Jesus as he mourns the death of his close friend.

Let’s spend some time in prayer over this scene.

 

PRAYER:

 

Think back over your life and choose a moment where, through your sin or the sin of another, you might have become spiritually dead and entombed like Lazarus. Feel the way the sin binds you, entrapping you in ways that prevent you from being the whole and holy person God created you to be. Take a few moments to consider that sin and all the ways it has hindered your life. Ask God to forgive you if it is a sin you committed. If the sin has been committed against you, ask God to forgive that person and to help you let it go. Imagine Jesus calling your name and saying to you what he said to Lazarus: “Come out!” Hear him say that you are now untied and free.

 

RESOLUTION:

 

This week, ask Jesus to release you from any sin or hurt that might still be binding you. Consider receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation for forgiveness and for the grace to be unbound.
