God, our father, in this lenten season, may we not betray your love by trying to deserve it. Help us to fast from all that distracts us from your love. Help us to recognize you as the origin and goal of all of the desires you place in our hearts. Help us be true to ourselves and true to you by continuing to beg for your love. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
My friends, this prayer is for you. I took it from THE MAGNIFICAT LENTEN COMPANION booklet. May all of you reach all of your weight loss goals and feel good about all of your accomplishments during this Lenten season. God Bless all of you.
