Loving God,
During the sacred season of Lent, bring me closer to you.

Prepare a place in my home and heart for silence and solitude,
so that I may re-discover the grace of a prayer-full life.

Help me to fast from those things that threaten the well-being
of body and soul and remind me of the grace of simplicity.

Enlarge my heart so that I give to those in need and, in so doing,
re-discover the grace of gratitude and generosity.

May this season be a grace-filled time to rekindle
my love and faith in you. Amen.
