Each year as Lent approaches, we decide that “this one” will be our best ever but it is so easy to lose momentum halfway through the 40 days. This year let us prepare by the most perfect method – by praying for help! Let us ask that we may:
- deepen our understanding of Jesus’ passion?
- walk with Jesus through his passion and resurrection?
- work on overcoming a temptation that keeps us from fully entering into life with Christ?
- foster a new spiritual practice to ignite or inflame our relationship with Jesus?
In these last few days before Lent begins, let us to begin our preparatory prayer. We can turn to Jesus and ask, “What is the grace You desire to deepen within me over these next 40 days?”
