Great Musician, as I settle into this Lenten season, guide my path. Give me the wisdom and the strength to leave behind the things that distract or discourage. I want more open space in my life. I want more open space for you. Amen.
Great Musician, you know when I am playing out of key. You know when I am starting my days with half-energy, half-heart, or half-hope. So today I pray: give my faith a “tune up.” Help me return to you even more faithful than before. Gratefully I pray, Amen.
Holy God, I could pray for you to create in me a clean heart. I could pray for you to wipe away my distractions. I could pray for you to settle my spirit on the side of joy. I could pray for peace in the world and peace with me. I could pray for an abiding sense of your presence—like a shadow at my heels. I could pray for all of these things, and so I will. God, hear these prayers. Take them all. Be with me. Amen.
