Prayer for Lent Week 2

For a week and four days

I’ve prayed

and denied myself

the simple pleasures

of life.

But still my eyes

cast a stony glance

towards injustice

I am ever seeing

but never percieving

Lord help me not rest

in how well I keep a rule

and observe a private discipline.

I do not want to be the type of Christian  who

fasts with stony eyes

and a hard heart.

 Make me hunger for Your will in this world

I may deny myself meat, but there are those who die without bread.

Break my heart God. Break all of our hearts
