prayer for fifth Sunday in Lent

Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

(from The Book of Common Prayer)

Thank you Ted. I really enjoy these written prayers you've posted. Do you post them every Sunday?

Thanks Monica. Lately I've been posting something on Sunday's that I hope will contribute to a reader's day, whether some lines from a written prayer, hymn, etc. Scot McKnight has been doing this for some time, and I think others do it as well. I like the idea, as Sundays tend to be a light day in the blog world, and ideally I think should include some special time of worship and reflection individually and corporately.

Not to say I consider that a hard, fast rule. If people want to blog on Sunday, I think that's fine. :)
