Prayer for the Second Sunday of Lent

Thou forgiver of sin, healer of sorrow, vanquisher of death: Draw us unto thyself, who are our salvation and our all-conquering hope. Make us citizens of thy kingdom, men of invincible good will, builders of a world where righteousness shall reign and the law of love shall triumph over hate and strife. Hasten the day when thou shalt take unto thyself thy great power and reign. Increase in us true devotion unto thyself; nourish us with all goodness; and of thy great mercy keep us steadfast; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Taken from The Methodist Book of Worship for Church and Home, 1965
