Prayer for Week 4 of Lent

And morning came too early

and my tired body protests.

       the hour lost.


Still I rise

 in the strength of 

         Your Resurrection

                     and coffee (Your

                      good gift to us).


Too much to do today

and I feel the weight of the

week ahead.


Lord give me space 

and time to 

sit in your presence;

help me press in

to all you are

even with a lost hour,

tired body

and too much to do.


Make me mindful of

Your road to


and all that weighed on You 

as you knew

what awaited you.


Show me how to give myself to you

      to use for you glory

        in the coming days.
