How often, Jesus, I find myself keeping a tally of the day’s annoyances – the angry word, the ingratitude or the lack of attention from those closest to me. Help me to grow in patience, understanding and forgiveness.
For those who are suffering in mind, body or spirit and for those who care for them.
Conclude Your Prayer With:
Lord, may my Lenten practices increase my love for you and deepen my confidence in the great love you have for me.
