A prayer for Lent

O Lord of my heart and soul,

purge me of my spiritual ambition,

cleanse me of my self-interest,

purify my motive,

fill me with your Spirit,

and then, O God, please make,

...”the you, near your mouth and in your heart” (Romans 10:8)

something other than “me” or “my”.

Forgive my preoccupation with self,

bring others into focus,

direct awareness, loving kindness,

generosity and justice,

ever to my thoughts and to my heart...
