Lent prayer: He heals the brokenhearted

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” 

Psalm 147:3

God of all wholeness,

heal our hearts

of all that prevents us responding

to our sisters and brothers

excluded by poverty

and prevented from living a full and healthy life.

This Lent, may we:

implore justice through our prayer,

stand in solidarity through our fasting,

and reach out through our giving.

Send your life-giving power

to revive the weary,

restore the broken

and renew the face of the earth.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
