A Prayer for Lent 2, Year C
God, Wellspring of joy:
replenish us in barren times;
lead us out of our habits of captivity
and into your country of promise;
In trouble, in emptiness of life, in sorrow,
let us never be separated from you,
that we may build in the wilderness an altar
and offer our whole hearts
to your renewing fire
and delivering mercy;
through Jesus Christ who gave himself for us.
