Prayer for Lent

Lenten prayer

Loving Father,
to prepare for his mission of proclaiming your kingdom to the world,
your Son, Jesus, was guided by your Holy Spirit to the quiet of the desert.

In these Lenten days, I pray that I will be guided by that same Spirit,

to a place of renewal in my heart and mind,
so that I will seek opportunities for daily personal prayer,
personal sacrifices and acts of kindness.
With your help, may I too be truly prepared
to share in the story of the Passion, Death and Resurrection
of Jesus, your Son, our Lord.   
Amen.

The Month of February

altThe Month of the
Holy Family

The Son of God chose to be born into a human family, in an obscure town on the periphery of the Roman Empire.  Although the Gospels tell us little about the first thirty years of his life, we can imagine that Jesus led a very "normal” family life.   Pope Francis

Daily Lenten Prayer

Daily Lenten Prayer - I choose, day by day

Today, Lord, I choose life,
I choose Your love and the challenge to live it and share it, 
I choose hope, even in moments of darkness,
 
I choose faith, accepting You as Lord and God, 
I choose to let go of some part of my burdens, 
day by day, handing them over to You.
I choose to take hold of Your strength and power
ever more deeply in my life.

May this truly be, for me, a time of new life,
of change, challenge and growth.
May I come to Easter with a heart open to dying with You
and rising to new life, day by day.
Amen.
