A Prayer Lent

Dear Brethren,

The prayer below is one from our own Prayer Book which you might find ‘Lenten-ly’ useful.

May God grant His healing and greater knowledge of His love as we endeavor to fill our Lenten intentions.

May the Holy Spirit renew, refresh and strengthen us.

Blessings,

Fr. Wayne

A Prayer for Penitence

MOST merciful God,
who art of purer eyes than to behold iniquity,
and hast promised forgiveness to all those who confess and forsake their sins;
We come before thee in an humble sense of our own unworthiness,
acknowledging our manifold transgressions of thy righteous laws.
But, O gracious Father, who desirest not the death of a sinner,
look upon us, we beseech thee, in mercy,
and forgive us all our transgressions.
Make us deeply sensible of the great evil of them,
and work in us an hearty contrition;
that we may obtain forgiveness at thy hands,
who art ever ready to receive humble and penitent sinners;
for the sake of thy Son Jesus Christ,
our only Saviour and Redeemer. Amen.
