Lord, to be honest, I do not enjoy
Lent. I start offwell and make many
good resolutions.

through Lent, it is increasingly easy
to chip away at one or more of my

earlier promises.

feel guilty, but
difficult to find.
I am sorry, Lord. You know
that I want to give myself to you
completely. I want you to be the Lord
