Benediction: Lent 2 C


Here’s a closing commission and benediction based on the suggested scripture readings for the second Sunday of Lent, Year C.  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

 

Benediction for Lent 2 C


Go now, trusting in God’s promises.
Seek the presence of the Lord
and abandon yourself to prayer.
Follow those who are faithful to God,
stand firm against evil and seek healing for all.

And may God be your saving light and fortress;
May Christ Jesus gather you into the safe wings of mercy;
And may the Holy Spirit make you citizens of heaven.

We go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen.
