Lent Morning Prayers

The Words for Lent come from the Old Testament Readings for the Sundays in Lent.


O God, you are my God; in the morning and in the evening eagerly I seek you.
 
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
I will gather you from every country, and bring you home to your own land.
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
I will pour clean water over you and cleanse you from your idols.
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
A new heart I will give you, and put a new spirit within you.
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
I will take from your body the heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
I will put my spirit within you and make you walk in my ways and observe my decrees.
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
You will be my people and I will be your God.
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
(from Ezekiel 36 & Ps 51)
 
Word for Lent and reading for the day (you will find the days Word for Lent and reading on our facebook page.)
 
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Do not bring us to to the time of trial,
but deliver us from evil.
Amen.
 

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, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.
 
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
 
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all evermore.  Amen.
