Prayers for Lent - at your computer

The Anglican Church of Canada is offering a nice service to assist the Lenten devotions of the 'puter-bound.

Throughout Lent, this space will feature striking landscapes paired with prayers from the Anglican Church of Canada and its partners. This resource is intended to offer a visual pause and to promote this season of reflection and repentance.

A certain geographical ecumenism seems to be at play since the first picture is of the Arizona desert.

And a certain liturgical breadth since the initial prayer is from the 1962 Canadian Book of Common Prayer.

Almighty and everlasting God,
who hatest nothing that thou has made, and
dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent:
Create and make in us new and contrite hearts,
that we worthily lamenting our sins,
and acknowledging our wretchedness,
may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy,
perfect remission and forgiveness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
