Lenten Prayer (2)

It is customary, Lord

to give something up

during the season of Lent.

What would you have me do without?

I who have so much.

Chocolate?

Cream cakes?

Cigarettes?

Sweets?

Swearing?

The list is endless

and I could give up all those things

for the span of 40 days

quite easily and almost painlessly.

But what difference would it make

other than making me feel 'holier'

that my friend who makes no such sacrifice?

What would you have me do without?

I who have so much

Selfishness?

Conceit?

Envy?

Pride?

I fear before I ask,

that the answer might be 'yes'

and the giving up

would be all too real, Lord.

It would be difficult,

painful,

sacrificial,

a real cross to carry for 40 days,

and more?

Like this service?

Consider buying us a cup of coffee, It'll REALLY help us improve it and keep it free. Thanks in advance and GOD BLESS YOU!
