With regard to prayers, these two are meaningful to our family.

1. Dear Lord, please be with us today as we enter into this holy season of Lent. Help us to be faithful to the promises we are making to you, ourselves, and each other for the next forty days. Guide us gently back to you if, and when, we stray. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.  

2. Dear Heavenly Father, help us as we struggle to be true to our Lenten promises to you. Make this season holy by our self-denial.
 Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
 who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit
, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
