Lord, help me put your gift of freedom to good use,
so that every choice I make draws me closer to you.
As my response to your invitation, Lord, throughout this Lent, I will be much more conscious in choosing you in every aspect of my life,
including how I spend my time, my money, and my energy.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
