Lent readings & prayers

Moray McKayLent, News

Week beginning 21 February

Bible Reading: Matthew 4 v 1-1

Prayer

Father God, Your Word reveals to us a simple truth: that sin entered this world through human folly in believing we could be like You; and permeated history through envy, selfishness and greed. Yet sin, which holds us tight within its grasp, cannot resist a heart that is touched by Your grace through Jesus Christ; cannot contend with Living Water pouring into hearts and souls. Your Word reveals to us a simple truth: that sin is defeated and we can become the people we were always meant to be, by Your grace through Jesus Christ. Amen
