DAY 2
MORNING PRAYER 
Loving God, 
During Lent teach me to quiet my racing mind in prayer,
Teach me to simplify my life,
Teach me to listen to Your voice in joy and in sorrow.
Teach me that my plans are nothing unless they are Your plans,
Keep us from sin and help us to live by your commandment of Love.
Amen
