Prayers for Lent

Let us keep these prayers in mind as we continue on our journey through Lent:

Collect for the First Sunday in Lent

Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ fasted forty days in the wilderness,
and was tempted as we are, yet without sin:
Give us grace to discipline ourselves in obedience to your Spirit;
and, as you know our weakness, so may we know your power to save;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Collect for Ash Wednesday (we continue to use this Collect until Easter Eve)

Almighty and everlasting God,
you hate nothing that you have made and forgive the sins of all those who are penitent:
Create and make in us new and contrite hearts that we,
worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness,
may receive from you, the God of all mercy,
perfect remission and forgiveness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
