Dear Father in heaven,
I can’t believe it’s been over a week since lent has started. The busyness of life has distracted me so much.
Even though I’m conscious of your Holy Spirit I believe I have cheated you of time by being preoccupied with my own agenda and to-do list. I’ve had the best intentions but have failed to act accordingly. Please forgive me Lord for my self-centerdness.
Even though I am disappointed with myself I see your glorious works in the midst. I am amazed how you care for the smaller details and make my life a bit easier. You put people in my path when I’m stuck and need a helping hand.
I can see your joy in a baby’s smile.
I can enjoy your presence sitting on the dock by the water.
Thank you for reminding me how magnificent you are.
Lord as I navigate through the next few weeks I pray that your wisdom infuses my mind and that I would be steadfast in discerning where your Spirit takes me. May my desire to seek you bring you joy and may my actions bring honour to you.
In your holy name I pray.
Beautiful prayer, Lucy. Applicable for all of us.
