A Collect for the Seventh Day of Lent

“… and he was in the wilderness forty days…”

Great and timeless God, who is patient beyond measure, seeing time at once from beginning to end, grant to us longsuffering, that when dryness and barrenness seem to last beyond what we can bear, we would remain steady, seeking strength from the one who likewise endured arid and empty space, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
