The Lenten Season is a chance for all Christians to commit to making efforts and sacrifices to deepen our faith and our understanding of Jesus’ sacrifice for us. The Church focuses on the works of fasting, almsgiving, and prayer during this season in an attempt to replicate Jesus’ works on earth.

Prayer For Lent
Dear Jesus, During this season of Lent, let me remember all that you have done for me. Help me to reflect upon the ultimate sacrifice and pain that you went through for us.

In moments where I struggle, remind me of the incomparable sacrifice and struggles that you endured. Guide my heart and mind to stay focused on your love and glory. In Jesus' name, Amen.
