Lenten Prayer: God of the Wilderness


Here’s a prayer of petition for Lent from the Anglican Church of Canada website.

Prayer for Lent:
God of the Wilderness

God of the wilderness,
your Spirit leads us to face the truth,
unprotected and exposed:
in our times of trial
help us to resist the worship of empty power,
so that we may find our true food
in Jesus Christ, the broken bread. Amen.
