Daily Lenten Prayer

Today Lord, I choose life,
I choose your love and the challenge
to live it and share it,
I choose hope, even in moments of
I choose faith, accepting you as Lord and God,
I choose to let go of some part of my burdens,
day by day handing them over to you,
I choose to take hold of your strength
and power ever more deeply in my life.
May this truly be for me a time of new life,
of change, challenge and growth.
May I come to Easter with a heart
open to dying with you
and rising to your new life, day by day.
