Lent crossLenten Reflection 2019. (Inspired by Edward Hayes)

Come, life giving Spirit and awaken my slumbering heart.

As you breathe upon our wintered earth, calling it to new life,

Awaken me as a child of God and disciple of Jesus in these forty days of  prayer, discipline and thoughtfulness.

Show me how to live the daily things of life with faith and infuse them with the power of your love.

Inspire in me simple acts of love and prayer and real works of reform, renewal and growth.

As you drove Jesus into the desert to be enlightened and empowered for his life and ministry, drive me during Lent to enkindle the fire of my love for God and the things of God.

Let me not waste these precious days of my soul’s springtime.

May Easter find me risen and alive in Christ.
