Prayer for the Fifth Friday in Lent

O God of the mysterious clouds, who appears most in darkness and speaks most in silence: we who have looked at love from both sides now and find that we do not really know love at all cry out like the bride for her lost lover, pleading for your Spirit to sate our hungry hearts; grant that we might learn to practice the fierce but gentle love of your Son, that in loving one another we may at last love you, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

For music, Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now”:


  1. Amen

    I don’t know who this Lent fellow is that you keep praying for, but I hope he’s ok. I’ll pray for him and add him to the temple prayer roll next time I’m there, that way we can be sure there will many prayers for Lent.

    Also, if he is in need of any service, I can arrange for the young men in my ward to come over and help. Just let me know if they need to bring gloves.

    It’s okay; I expect him to pull out of it next Saturday night. The lights will come on, and all will be well.

  4. Joni

  5. Jason K. says:

    Yes, Joni.
