Lent Prayer 19 – March 23

Lent Prayer 19

deceits are all around us

closer than we know

or suspect.


harder to be let down

by those we thought



faithful, part of the

community of

the name.


where the angels are

there demons will

be also


may we be innocent

as doves and wise

as serpents


as you advised us

so long
