Lenten Prayer # 13: For God's Love
Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you;
therefore he will rise up to show mercy to you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
blessed are all those who wait for him.
Father God, have you been watching for your long-lost sons and daughters to come home? Awaken yearning for you. Strengthen those who turn toward home...show mercy to those who are not yet sure if it is possible to do so. Run towards those who come! Convince us of your unfailing love, no matter what we have done. Be quick to answer when people cry for help. May this be the day, patient God, when you satisfy your desire to be known the God who is gracious to ALL.
