Prayer for Lent 4

Shepherding God:
you create life
from the mud of the earth;
you draw forth light
from the shadowed corners of chaos;
your goodness and mercy
are our closest friends.
Great is your name.

Jesus our Shepherd:
you open eyes
shuttered by sin
and prejudice;
you heal lives
shattered by bitterness;
you create pools of still grace
in our stress-filled hearts.
Great is your love

Holy Spirit,
our companion in every darkened valley:
you plant seeds of goodness and mercy
deep within our souls,
that we would bear fruit for others;
you awaken us from
our troubled sleep,
that we might be a light to the world.
Great is your peace.
