Sixth Day of Lent
We appreciate it when things come easy. But help us not to appreciate it too much; help us not to seek for things to come easy.
Let us see the value in striving, in struggling, and even in suffering, especially when it comes to the things that matter the most: our relationship with you and with other people and the costly ways that those relationships work out in real, daily life.
Remind us that things that are most worth having are worth whatever pain it takes to get them, to have them, to keep them, and to grow in them.
