Preparing for Lent

How does one prepare for Lent? We only have today and tomorrow before it is here.

We know that Lent is a time of prayer and fasting. It is a time that we reflect on what Christ did for us. It is a period of 40 days that leads up to the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ Jesus.

During this time of Lent we are to either give up something to help us deepen our relationship and prayer life with Christ, or we can start doing something (praying more, giving more money/time...).

What is God calling you to give up? It isn't supposed to be something easy, it should be tough. Is there a sin that you are dealing with in your life? Try then to give that up.

As for me, I am giving up facebook, trying to break away from a sin that I have been struggling with for most of my life, and grow deeper in my prayer life (I am nowhere close of where I want to be).

May God pour out His proudest blessings upon you during this Lenten Season!
