Lenten Prayer

God of Eternity,
we thank you
for the gift of salvation.
As we walk through the desert
this Lenten season,
we thirst for the healing waters
of your love.
Give us the strength to overcome
the temptation of sin.
Cleanse our hearts and minds
that we might prepare with great joy
for the resurrection of your Son,
Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Amen.
