A Prayer for the First Sunday of Lent

Posted by RENEW on Mar 8, 2019 6:00:38 AM

God of mercy and compassion,
forgive me for the times I fall into temptation,
release and free me from the trap of sin.
Give me the grace to be a more aware
and self-reflective person,
a person who takes responsibility
for my actions and emotions
and does not project those painful emotions on others.
Help me to let go of the false gods that I cling to and
give me a deep trust in your desire
to fill the needs of my heart.
I ask this in the name of God who is a loving Father,
in Jesus, the compassion of God,
and through the Holy Spirit,
the One who makes all things new.
