A LENTEN PRAYER
Almighty and Everlasting God, you have given the human race Jesus Christ as a model of humility.
He fulfilled your will by becoming man and giving his life on the cross. Help us to bear witness to you by following his example of suffering and make us worthy to share in his resurrection. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son. Amen.
