Lenten Prayer, Part II

10 Mar

These 40 words I pick up.

For 40 days.

Possible, capable, qualified

through your strength

Beautiful, graceful, wonderful

in your eyes.

Gentle, compassionate, selfless

following your  example.

Focused, committed, healthy

honoring your creation.

Forgiven, flawless, perfected

by your grace alone.

Taking time to be still, silence my whispers

hearing yours.

And  in carrying these words, just maybe

becoming comfortable enough to believe them.

And perhaps, after 40 days, hold on to them still.
