Please join us in prayer this Lent with this prayer by Colten Biro, SJ.
Let me fast—
Giving up the excess and distraction in my life,
So that I can hold on tighter to Your Son.
Guide my fasting, Lord,
So that it places You
At the center of everything I am.
Let me give alms—
I have and possess as generous gifts from You,
Giving to those in need, as a way of sharing and returning those gifts,
So that I grow in gratitude and wonder for the ways You love.
Guide my giving, Lord,
So that it molds my heart
To be more like Yours.
Let me pray—
Bringing to You all my hopes, fears, and struggles,
Deepening our relationship and my reliance upon You,
So that no matter the deserts, the crosses, or the joys in my life
I’ll remember You are with me, always.
Guide my prayer, Lord,
So that my encounter with You these forty days
Draws me deeper into the mystery of Your love.
- Colten Biro, SJ
