Turn Inward (Eleventh Day of Lent)
During Lent we spend time turning inward; we look deep into our lives to ascertain what is there and then to deal with it.
When we turn inward we will find ways in which we are not who we should be and ways in which we are less than we could be. Give us courage to face up to those ways and give us faith to give in to the ways that your grace and Spirit will work to change us.
When we turn inward we will also find ways in which we are growing toward being our authentic selves and in which we are genuinely progressing toward being who you have made us to be. Thank you for the grace humbly to acknowledge those ways and for the wisdom to build on them.
