Pope Francis prayer for Lent

Creator God, as we enter the Lenten season, strengthen us to embrace opportunities to…
Fast from hurting words and say kind words.
Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude.
Fast from anger and be filled with patience.
Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope.
Fast from worries and have trust in you.
Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity.
Fast from pressures and be prayerful.
Fast from bitterness and fill our hearts with joy.
Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others.
Fast from grudges and be reconciled.
Fast from words and be silent so we can listen.
May our only desire and our one choice
be what leads us to a closer relationship with you.
Amen
