Lent Event Prayer and Scripture for Today

February 27, 2009

Day 3 : Letting go

Scripture for reflection: Matthew 6:19-24

Prayer: Creator God, All that I have belongs to you. You call me to be a good steward of all you have entrusted to me. But I confess that sometimes I want to hold it for myself. So easily it becomes precious to me. I think of myself as having ‘earned’ it by my own hard work, or ‘deserved’ it due to my own good nature. Then your good news can sound like bad news to my ears. Spirit of grace, continue in me your transforming work this Lenten season. Grant me the strength to let go of the things of the world, that I may gain abundant life. Amen.
