Collect of the Week:

Let us pray…

Lord Jesus,

As You were led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit and then tempted by Satan, the Father of Lies, You did not stray from Your mission to continually move towards Calvary and the sacrifice that awaited You there. By the power of the Holy Scriptures, You repelled the devil with the truths of God’s promises until he fled from You. In great humility we bow before You and confess that we have fallen into the temptation of despair, of self-pity, and the belief that You are not a fair and just God. Forgive us these and all our sins and wash us clean with Your blood. Pour into our hearts daily Your Words of truth and establish them there that we, too, might use them to fight against the Tempter; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
