PRAYER FROM LUTHER’S PRAYERS:
Dear God, the woman of Canaan was a heathen and wasnot among the chosen. As she did not let this hinder her from praying, I too will pray. I need help (and must havethis and that). Where else could I look and find it but withyou through your Son, my Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Amen
From Luther’s Small Catechism:
The Seventh Petition
And deliver us from evil.
What does this mean?
We ask in this inclusive prayer that our heavenlyFather would save us from every evil to body andsoul, and at our last hour would mercifully takefrom us the troubles of this world to himself inheaven.
SECOND SUNDAYIN LENT
Heavenly Father, it is your glory always to have mercy. Bring back all who have erred and strayed from your ways; lead them again to embrace in faith the truth of your Word and to hold it fast; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever
