A Lenten Morning Prayer:

Lord Jesus, you lived and died for me.

Help me to keep that thought before me today so that whatever life brings, whether it be success or failure, satisfaction or disappointment, happiness or sorrow, I may offer it to you.

Through me, may everyone I meet this day see You Lord, see Your presence and experience Your love.  Lord I offer You today.

May I serve You by serving others in Your name making all that I do a gift of love and thanksgiving for all You have done for me.  Amen
