Prayers for a Whole Life : Day 10

prayer for recalibration


God,
make this Lent
a new normal
for my life.

Let me not anticipate Easter
like the end of a diet,
a welcome buffet of chocolate cakes
and deep-dish pizzas,
caffeine and
rocky road
alongside the resurrection.

Remind me that
your sacrifice
and your new life
are.
Always.

Teach me lessons during this season
that will recalibrate my life,
so that I can grow toward you
both in sacrifice and in celebration.
Shape my lenten practicing into
new targets,
new horizons,
new boundaries
for every day to come.
