Prayer: Extravagant God

Here’s a prayer of commitment and/or dedication inspired by John 12:-18, where Mary anoints Jesus’ feet.  It comes from the Anglican Church of Canada.

 

Collect for Lent 5 C

(inspired by John 12:1-8)

 

Extravagant God,

lavishing your love on our poverty of heart:

inspire us to give with generosity,

to love life so that we may find it again,

and thus the world will be filled

with the fragrance of your love;

through Jesus Christ, who offers himself for us. Amen.
