The Lenten season begins. It is a time to be with you, Lord, in a
special way, a time to pray, to fast, and thus to follow you on your
way to Jerusalem, to Golgotha, and to the final victory over death.

I am still so divided. I truly want to follow you, but I also want to
follow my own desires and lend an ear to the voices that speak
about prestige, success, pleasure, power, and influence. Help me to
become deaf to these voices and more attentive to your voice,
which calls me to choose the narrow road to life.

I know that Lent is going to be a very hard time for me. The choice
for your way has to be made every moment of my life. I have to
choose thoughts that are your thoughts, words that are your words,
and actions that are your actions. There are not times or places
without choices. And I know how deeply I resist choosing you.

Please, Lord, be with me at every moment and in every place. Give
me the strength and the courage to live this season faithfully, so
that, when Easter comes, I will be able to taste with joy the new life
that you have prepared for me. Amen.
