Prayer for the Lenten Season: Walking with Jesus

“God, Father and Creator, we thank you for all the gifts you have given us, especially the gift of your Son. During this holy season of Lent, help us to change and grow and become the kind of people you created us to be. Fill our hearts with love for you, and love for other people, created in your image. Show us how to use the gifts you have given us to help others in Your name. As we journey together toward the light of Easter, we know you are with us in all that we do. May we live always as people of your kingdom praising Your name now and forever. Amen”
