Into the Spirit of Lent

March 2, 2018

Lord, as we enter into Lent
may we strive each day
to deepen Your friendship with You
so as to make this a time of Your grace,
a season of Your favor.

Deepen us a desire to please You,
to overcome things that hinder us
from lifting our minds and hearts to You.
May these precious days of Lent not be wasted.

Help us clear a way the things
that keep the goodness of your love
from shining down on us,
so we can grow in friendship with You,
with the warmth of Your love,
just like a new blossom springing forth
under the warmth of the sun.
