PRAYER FOR LENT
LORD JESUS CHRIST,
by your passion, death and resurrection you have set us free from sin and death. May your grace renew our hearts this Lent and help us turn from sin in our own lives. May we learn to appreciate more deeply the sacrifice you made for us. Accept our prayer, fasting and acts of charity as we seek to draw closer to you during this holy season. Strengthen the faith of your people so that we may be a sign of your love to all the world. Lord Jesus, you live and reign with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
