Prayer for Lent

Loving Creator,

I feel the pace quicken, the time draw near.

I am filled with joy as I move toward Easter and the promised reconciliation with you.

Teach me to follow the example of your Son, to be worthy of being called one his people: a Christ-ian.

Help me to live each day as he did turning hatred to love and conflict to peace.

I await the new life with eagerness, faith and a deep gratitude.
