Lenten Prayer for Spiritual Renewal

God, heavenly Father, look upon me and hear my prayer during this holy
Season of Lent. By the good works You inspire, help me to discipline my
body and to be renewed in spirit.
Without You I can do nothing. By Your Spirit help me to know what is
right and to be eager in doing Your will. Teach me to find new life
through penance. Keep me from sin, and help me live by Your
commandment of love. God of love, bring me back to You. Send Your
Spirit to make me strong in faith and active in good works. May my acts
of penance bring me Your forgiveness, open my heart to Your love, and
prepare me for the coming feast of the Resurrection of Jesus.
Lord, during this Lenten Season, nourish me with Your Word of life and
make me one with You in love and prayer. Fill my heart with Your love
and keep me faithful to the Gospel of Christ. Give me the grace to rise
above my human weakness. Give me new life by Your Sacraments,
especially the Mass. Father, our source of life, I reach out with joy to
grasp Your hand; let me walk more readily in Your ways. Guide me in
Your gentle mercy, for left to myself I cannot do Your Will.
Father of love, source of all blessings, help me to pass from my old life
of sin to the new life of grace. Prepare me for the glory of Your
Kingdom. I ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives
and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever. Amen.
