A Lenten Prayer
Excuse our poor prayers Lord, for our throats are dry.
Our lives are a mix of sin and righteousness.
We follow you, but our hearts are broken–distracted by the cares of the world.
We hear your good news, and rejoice for a moment, but your promises seem so far away.
And yet, despite the seeming distance, we wait. We wait on the coming of our Lord.
May it be so.
