Prayer of Confession | First Sunday in Lent (Year C)

Holy God,
we have entered the wilderness of Lent
and temptations are all around us.
From outside and from within
we are tempted to abandon your Word
and replace it with lies of our own.
We confess that we have not trusted you as we should.
Through both our action and our inaction
we have failed to trust your Word
and believe your promise of salvation.
Forgive us, merciful God, and hear now our prayer.

God of steadfast love,
you alone are our refuge and our strength.
Help us to answer your call
and live as ones who hope and trust in you.
Give us the courage to follow the path of your Son
and trust your everlasting Word.
Bestow upon us the faith to answer temptation with trust
and to rely upon your goodness and grace.

Prayer for Illumination | First Sunday in Lent (Year C)

Holy God,
reveal your presence to us this day
as we journey this path with your Son.
Through all of life’s trials and tribulations
your Word sustains us for the journey ahead.
Send your Spirit upon us
that we might listen, discern, and take heart.
Be near us this day
and may your Word with us stay
and dwell with us forevermore.

Call to Worship | First Sunday in Lent (Year C)

One: The Lord has called upon us
Many: and we will answer!
One: The Lord is our refuge and our stronghold;
Many: in God we will place our trust.
One: Do you dwell in the shelter of the Most High?
Many: We abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
One: Let us continue our Lenten journey;
Many: Let us depart for it is Christ who leads the way!
