we call on your Holy Name,
trusting in its healing power.
May we confess your saving mercies,
and live joyfully in the shadow of your shelter.
You are our refuge, our fortress,
and our dwelling place.
May we forever trust in you and praise you,
our Sovereign One.
(a prayer for the First Sunday in Lent by Alydia Smith, from Everyday Skeptics (UCPH))
