Prayer for this Second Sunday of Lent

O merciful Father, in compassion for your sinful children
     you sent your Son Jesus Christ to be the Savior of the world.
Grant us grace to feel and to lament our share of the evil
     that made it necessary for him to suffer and to die for our salvation.
Help us by self-denial, prayer, and meditation
     to prepare our hearts for deeper penitence and a better life.
And give us a true longing to be free from sin,
     through the deliverance won by Jesus Christ our Redeemer. Amen.

from The United Methodist Book of Worship
