God, heavenly Father,
look upon me and hear my prayer
during this holy Season of Lent.
By the good
works You inspire,
help me to discipline my body
and to be renewed in spirit.
Without You I can do nothing.
By Your Spirit help me to know
what is right
and to be eager in doing Your will.
Teach me to find new life
Keep me from sin, and help me live
by Your commandment of love.
God of love, bring me back to You.
Send Your Spirit
to make me strong
and active in good
May my acts
bring me Your forgiveness,
open my heart to Your love,
and prepare me for the coming feast
of the Resurrection of Jesus.
Lord, during this Lenten Season,
nourish me with Your Word of life
and make me one
with You in love and prayer.
Fill my heart with Your love
and keep me faithful to the Gospel of Christ.
Give me the grace
to rise above my human weakness.
Give me new life
by Your Sacraments, especially the Mass.
Father, our source of life,
I reach out with joy to grasp Your hand;
let me walk more readily in Your ways.
Guide me in Your gentle mercy,
for left to myself I cannot do Your Will.
Father of love, source of all blessings,
help me to pass from my old life
to the new life
Prepare me for the glory
of Your Kingdom.
I ask this through our Lord Jesus
Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever.
