Finding New Life Through Penance (Prayer)

| Categories: PRAYERS | | 3 Comments

God, heavenly Father,
look upon me and hear my prayer
during this Holy Season of Lent.

By the good works You inspire,
help me to discipline my body
and to be renewed in spirit. 

Without You I can do nothing.
By Your Spirit help me to know what is right
and to be eager in doing Your will.


Teach me to find new life through penance.
Keep me from sin, and help me live
by Your commandment of love.


God of love, bring me back to You.
Send Your Spirit to make me strong
in faith and active in good works.


May my acts of penance bring me Your forgiveness, open my heart to Your love,
and prepare me for the coming feast
of the Resurrection of Jesus.

Lord, during this Lenten Season,
nourish me with Your Word of life
and make me one
with You in love and prayer.

Fill my heart with Your love
and keep me faithful to the Gospel of Christ.
Give me the grace to rise above my human weakness.
Give me new life by Your Sacraments, especially the Mass.

Father, our source of life,
I reach out with joy to grasp Your hand;
let me walk more readily in Your ways.
Guide me in Your gentle mercy,
for left to myself I cannot do Your Will.

Father of love, source of all blessings,
help me to pass from my old life of sin
to the new life of grace.
Prepare me for the glory of Your Kingdom.
I ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever. Amen.

Love and Blessings, Wendy C.

Wendy,

Your posts are always spirit filled and uplifting. God has blessed you in so many ways.

Can you please tell me where I can get a copy of that beautiful image of our Lord Crucified. That is the exact image I have in mind as I stand with Our Blessed Mother at the Foot of the Cross during the Consecration at Mass.

Thank you for all you do!
