A Lenten Collect to Not Satisfy Merely Material Desires

Lord Jesus Christ, who was tempted to satisfy his hunger in the wilderness, open our hearts to see our deepest needs, that we might not focus merely on the material things of this world, but would devote ourselves to greater and more lasting things, through you who lives and reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. ‘The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become a loaf of bread.” Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘One does not live by bread alone.’”‘ – Luke 4:3-4
