«Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit.»

Psalm 51:12


The work of restoration cannot begin until a problem is fully faced..

– Dan B. Allender


Almighty, eternal, and merciful God, as we observe another Ash Wednesday and enter another Lenten season, make us ready to have the joy of Your salvation restored in us. May this time of fasting, prayer, and repentance before Easter be one where we face the problems that hold us back in life and faith. And may we lean upon Your grace alone, which comes to us through Christ Your Son. In Your holy name I pray. Amen.
