First Sunday of Lent

First Sunday of Lent, 14 February: Deuteronomy 26:4-10; Psalm 91; Romans 10:8-13; Luke 4:1-13 ~ a walk through the desert

Lord our God, you alone do we worship, only your word gives life. Sustain your people on our Lenten journey. When we walk through the desert of temptation, strengthen us to renounce the power of evil. When our faith is tested by doubt, illumine our hearts with Easter’s bright promise. We ask this through Christ, our deliverance and hope, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, holy and mighty God for ever and ever.
