A Prayer for Lent

by Jean Mollett

Lord Jesus,
May the rushing wind of mercy
blow away all trace of sin within us,
and may your unquenchable fire
purify our souls.

We believe
That you comfort those who mourn,
uplift those who are depressed,
calm those who are angry,
guide those who are confused,
console those who are lonely,
reconcile those who are estranged,
and bring joy to all who confess Jesus Christ
as Lord!

We pray
that you will live
in our simple and humble hearts
and so make us truly
temples of your glorious love.

A Prayer of Erasmus (1469-1536)


Author's Note: This is a prayer for Lent is in our Worship folder at church. I just wanted to share it with all. I didn't write it.
