Lent Morning & Evening Prayer

Morning Prayer – Lent
The sacrifice of God is a broken spirit: a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
Psalm 51.18
Confession
Most merciful God,
I confess that I have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what I have done
and by what I have left undone.
I have not loved you with my whole heart; I have not loved my neighbours as myself. I aam truly
sorry and humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on me and forgive me,
that I may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your name. Amen.

Venite (Psalm 95.1–7)
Come, let us sing to the Lord; *
let us shout for joy to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving * and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God, *
and a great king above all gods.
In his hand are the caverns of the earth, * and the heights of the hills are his also.
The sea is his for he made it, *
and his hands have moulded the dry land.
Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, * and kneel before the Lord our maker.
For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture and the
sheep of his hand. *
Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!

thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.

as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

May the God of peace enable us to do his will in every kind of goodness, working in us what
pleases him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Evening Prayer – Lent
O Lord, I call to you; come to me quickly;
Hear my voice when I cry to you.
Let my prayer be set forth in your sight as incense,
The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Psalm 134
Behold now, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, * you that stand by night in the house
of the Lord.
Lift up your hands in the holy place and bless the Lord; *
the Lord who made heaven and earth bless you out of Zion.
