Lenten Prayer

God of mercy,

          You have given us this special time to reflect on our belief in the Good News and draw closer to you. May this season of Lent help us to use this “time” to fast and pray, be more generous and witness to others how to live for Christ. Let us  see each day of this season as a new opportunity to renew our lives and gain a  deeper appreciation of our faith.

          Give us the grace to see your face in others,  especially in the poor and those who suffer. Through your Spirit, enkindle in us the fire of your love so that we may be better stewards of your redeeming work throughout the world. We ask this in Jesus, your Son.  Amen.

Love, Deacon John
