March 6, 2019 - A couple of "reruns" of poems from past years...for reflection in this holy season of Lent...

Little Lenten Prayer

Fasting
You ask me to deny myself,
take up my cross each day,
please satisfy my hunger, Lord,
along this Lenten way.

Almsgiving
To you who offer Life to me,
I simply offer all,
please help me share with those in need
in answer to your call.

Prayer
You prayed so earnestly, dear Lord,
in trusting agony,
please let me join you in that prayer
when facing Calvary.

Simple Lenten Prayer

Jesus, when my faults are many
and my failures show my pride,
help me turn in true repentence
from the sins I'd like to hide.

In your mercy, Lord, receive me,
lowly, poor and humble One.
Help me find in You my courage,
as I pray, "Your will be done."

 

Lenten Offering

If I say, "I offer all, Lord,"
but I'm not sure how to give it,
will you listen to my prayer, Lord,
and come close and help me live it?

As I bring my humble offering,
will you take it and remold it?
Lord, my life is yours, my future,
please direct it and unfold it.
