Prayer for Lent

This morning, my Lenten prayer is from the Book of Common Prayer:

Lamb of God,
you take away the sins of the world.
Have mercy on us.
Grant us peace.
For the unbearable toil of our sinful world,
we plead for remission.
For the terror of absence from our beloved,
we plead for your comfort.
For the scandalous presence of death in your creation,
we plead for resurrection.
Lamb of God,
you take away the sins of the world.
Have mercy on us.
Grant us peace.
Come, Holy Spirit, and heal all that is broken in our lives, in our streets, and in our world.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of  the Holy Spirit. Amen

    Most amazing. And the one they almost always give to the alto to sing in the Requiem Mass. Such peace.
