Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 3/9



Got the ashes on Wednesday
   (or didn't)...

Know what I'm giving up for Lent
   (not really)...

Praying more each day
   (not so much)...

Setting coin aside to help the poor
   (wanna do that)...

Off to a great start 
   (it's Lent already?)...

Lord,
   it's five days into Lent
   and we're all in different places...

Some of us have run five laps,
   others are still looking for the start line...

Some of us do this really well
   and some of us have a hard time with it...

Help us all be modest in our goals
   and realistic in our pledges...

Help us make a simple plan for Lent
   and keep it - with your help...

Help us pause each day for prayer,
   if only for three minutes...

Help us fast and go without
   to learn what truly feeds us...

Open up our wallets, our hearts,
   to those in need...

It's still early, not too late to start,
   on Lent's first Sunday morning...

Today's the day that you have made:
   Lord, call us back you with all our heart...
