The Hungers of Temptation
The First Sunday in Lent
Old Testament: Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7
Psalter: Psalm 32
Epistle: Romans 5:12-19
Gospel: Matthew 4:1-11
God of wilderness and water, your Son was baptized and tempted as we are. Guide us through this season, that we may not avoid struggle, but open ourselves to blessing, through the cleansing depths of repentance and the heaven-rending words of the Spirit. Amen.
from the movie, Jesus (1999) starring Jeremy Sisto.
PRAYER: God of mercy, your word was the sure defense of Jesus in his time of testing. Minister to us in the wilderness of our temptation, that we who have been set free from sin by Christ may serve you well into life everlasting. Amen.
