Day 15, Lent

This prayer is written by St. Anselm who lived in the 11th century.  Being that we just read Luke 13 where Jesus says he is like a mother hen and weeps for Jerusalem, it seemed like a good prayer for today.

PrayerJesus, as a mother you gather your people to you:

 You are gentle with us as a mother with her children;

 Often you weep over our sins and our pride:

 tenderly you draw us from hatred and judgement.

 You comfort us in sorrow and bind up our wounds:

 in sickness you nurse us,

and with pure milk you feed us.Jesus, by your dying we are born to new life: 

 By your anguish and labour we come forth in joy.

 Despair turns to hope through your sweet goodness:

 through your gentleness we find comfort in fear.

 Your warmth gives life to the dead:

 your touch makes sinners righteous.

 Lord Jesus, in your mercy heal us:

 in your love and tenderness remake us.

 In your compassion bring grace and forgiveness:

 for the beauty of heaven may your love prepare us.

Amen.

Peace,

Laurie
