A Prayer for Friday, February 19, 2016

Ninth Day of Lent

O God,

When it comes to repentance, let 180° be our goal.

Let it be our sincere intent to turn completely around and go the other way.

If it can be a once-and-for-all sudden complete reversal, that’s great.

But give us grace to accept the incremental turning that we must sometimes do.

If our turning sometimes has to be 1° at a time, so be it. Keep us from beating ourselves up about it. Keep us turning a little bit at a time.

But let 180° always be our goal . . .
