"As we journey through Lent, considering our own discipleship, what better time to pray for the him as he takes this momentous step on his journey - and we can also pray for ourselves and for the wider church.
"Prayer is a radical action with enormous and unforeseen consequences. Prayer enables us to recognise that we are not in control but that God is.
"And so prayer allows us to be transformed into the people God wants us to be."
Archbishop Justin will be spending part of the day praying on his own and, at times, with other people.
