A Lenten Prayer composed by the School of Ministry in Plymouth, NH
Almighty God, Source of all mercies: As your love protected Jesus during his time of isolation and trial, may it also strengthen us. Help us to trust in your love’s power to heal. Take away our pride, and give us the courage to seek your way, so that when this Lent is over, we might find ourselves renewed for the hard and holy work of living as one human family. We ask these things in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
