Pastoral Prayer, Lent 5 A

taizeGracious God, you who created light so that we might see your grace, open our eyes to see how you are carefully and constantly weaving blessings throughout our life. Put upon our heart to respond to brokenness with healing.

Holy Father, Father of Christ who opened the eyes of the blind, made the lame to walk, and the dead to walk again, strengthen the spirit of Christ living within us, so that through humility, patience, grace, and love, we may find your abundant, kingdom-building life.

Sovereign Lord, God of all by the power of the Holy Spirit, you alone can bring into order our
 wills and affections: Grant your people grace to
 love what you command and desire what you promise; that,
 among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts
 may surely be fixed where true joys are to be found;
 through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with 
you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever, as we continue to pray saying:

Our Father, who art in Heaven

Hallowed be thy name

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done

On earth as it is in heaven

 Give us this day our daily bread

And forgive us our trespasses

As we forgive those who trespass against us

Lead us not into temptation

But deliver us from evil

 For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
