Prayer for Lent #2

Let us not only pray this prayer, but live it out throughout this wonderful season of Lent:

Let us Pray:

Lord Jesus, teach us how to pray. Help us to be agents of bringing about your will in our world, and to be open to recognizing your unexpected actions in our lives and world. Help us to learn not to stockpile yesterday's stale bread, but to rely on the strength you give us each day. Help us to dig deep into our hearts to find forgiveness for those who have hurt us, and to feel the weight of nursed grudges and indulgent self-pity lifted from us. We acknowledge that the kingdom, the power and the glory truly are yours, now and forever. Amen.
