LCMS Worship provides “A Lenten Prayer” for congregations to use in worship services or for families to use during devotions.

Lent is a time that calls for our return to God in prayer (Joel 2). “A Lenten Prayer” is a penitential prayer based on the “Jesus Prayer”: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

This particular prayer is one of the older prayers of the Church from the Lutheran Reformation.
