A Prayer for Lent

God our Father,
we thank you for your reconciling work,
patiently, lovingly, restoring all creation. 

We thank you for Jesus Christ,
reconciler, saviour, midwife of our journey to new birth. 

We thank you for the gift of your Holy Spirit,
dancing, delighting in the beauty of the earth. 

This Lent, deepen us in prayer and new vocation
to your task of reconciliation.   
Help us look forward to your Easter mystery;
our hearts are restless till they rest in you.
Amen.
