29th day of Lent: prayer and reading
O Lord we beseech you to deliver us from fear of unknown future, from fear of failure
Fear of poverty, fear of bereavement, fear of loneliness, fear of sickness and pain, fear of old age and fear of death.
Help us by your grace to love and seek only you, fill our hearts with cheerful courage and loving trust in thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
