Weekly Prayer - A Prayer for Lent

This Lent, Lord, help me leave behind the distractions
of my daily life and make this a time of spiritual retreat,
of letting go all that holds me back from taking the risk
of drawing closer to You, allowing Your Spirit to lead me,
and speak to my heart.

Forty days, or four, or forth minutes or four!
Whatever I can manage!
The time spent is not the key, I know,
but my willingness to look into my frailty,
and they to trust in You and to seek Your will for me.
