Still not giving up Social Media for Lent.

While some choose to give something up for lent, as I did in 2013, in 2014 I will again take on a discipline. This year, because my prayer life has been less than spectacular as of late, I am going to offer a daily prayers for Lent (whatever hits me each morning) along with a video or some other resource. I have also listed a few more at the end of this post.

Respite

Go — and now go faster

Try — and now try harder

Do — and now do more

During times of physical, emotional and logistical overload, God, let me know when to rest.

However — wherever — whenever

Respite

Amen

And if you need a little music to get you started, here is one from one of my brass playing heroes (I played trumpet for 1o years), Chuck Mangione and Feels So Good.

See all of my 2014 Lenten prayers here and here is a good Lent 101 article from my denomination, the Presbyterian Church (USA).
