Thirty-Third Day of Lent
Remind us that to repent means to return to you and to turn our lives around.
Having remembered what it means to repent, give us grace and strength to do so.
There are areas of our lives in which we need to turn completely around and go in the opposite direction; help us to make a 180° turn in areas in which we need to go the other way.
But there are also areas of our lives in which we need to turn just a degree or two from the direction in which we are going; there are areas where making the smallest adjustment—the smallest change in perspective, in attitude, in commitment, in awareness, in action—can make all the difference.
In all things, cause our repentance to be guided by the ways, the words, and the Spirit of Christ.
