As we approach Lent and look forward to the Six Week Lenten Bible Course that will be presented by Deacon David Suley, I came across this prayer that was included in a prayer book for Lectors that seemed fitting for all of us:

Prayer During Lent

Dear Jesus, here I am once again on the forty-day journey through Lent.  May my words in this holy season help all who listen to approach your great sacrifice at Calvary with reverence and awe.  Lead all of us deeper into your Scripture so that it’s meaning might prompt us to pray, fast, and share our goods with others throughout these forty days.  Help me this Lent to set aside quiet time for more spiritual reading and above all the reading of your word in Scripture.  May I proclaim it with deep faith in you and all that you taught in the gospels.  Help me to make more time for personal and quiet prayer with you as well.  May my reading of Scripture help other parishioners too to examine and even improve their own relationships with you this Lent.  Help us all to become the persons you are calling us to be. Amen.
