Daily Prayers for Lent | 4-05-22

Loving God, may we reach out with joy to grasp your hand.

If we are honest, we realize that we have been seeking other sources of life.

We recognize our weakness and turn to God for help.

Though our hearts are being opened up to their depths,

though we cry out to God for help, we are not discouraged.

The Lord is near to broken hearts.

When the just cry out, the Lord hears them,

and from all their distress God rescues them.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted;

and those who are crushed in spirit he saves. Amen.
