Twenty-Fifth Day of Lent
We must face the negative in us—the sinful attitudes and motives that lead us to do what we should not do and not to do what we should do.
But having faced, confessed, and repented of them, help us not to dwell on them.
Instead, move us toward what is positive and beneficial. Develop in us a single-minded devotion to accepting your love for us and to growing in our love for you.
By your Spirit and grace, work in us to eliminate the negative and to accentuate the positive.
