A Prayer at the Beginning of Lent

God bless us in this holy season:
to know thy Holy Will for us and seek true wisdom;
To have true fear of the Lord; and to seek holiness
in our actions.
For this we pray, that we your people, may offer ourselves:
our very lives, purposes, and beings to You,
the one Holy and Triune God.
In this season, we pray, that you may grant us
true contrition for our sins and,
unified with graces of the Sacrament of Reconciliation,
may we find You, O Lord, again
in the great Sacrament of the Mass,
through which we may truly offer You all praise
and thanksgiving,
for the passion, death, and resurrection
of dearly beloved Lord, Jesus Christ.
