A-Lenten-Prayer-a-Day, Day 30

Note: As a personal, spiritual discipline, reviving my practice in the Lenten season of 2017, I revise the prayers I wrote then for each of the forty days of this Lent; each petition focusing on a theme, a concern weighing on my mind and heart or a care of my soul and spirit.

On willing one thing (again)…

eye of faith

O Lord, I see more clearly what Your Son Jesus taught and meant by “seeking first Your Kingdom and Your Righteousness.”

Still, O Lord, You, having created me, know me and the frailty of my flesh:

figure hunched over

the interruptions and distractions of my days and…

the corruption of my perceptions in my fixation on the thing in front of me (which rarely is of ultimate importance) and foremost…

the passions of my self-directed and self-interested ways.

O Lord, grant me, by Your Spirit, perseverance at all times and in all times of prosperity and adversity, wellness and sickness, strength and weakness to want the one and only thing of striving to do Your will.

Amen.
