A Lenten prayer

Loving God, let me die in your arms. I am your child; take me up in your loving hands and wash me clean of all that I have been, so that I may be made new. In your love, I shed my illusions; I surrender my desires, I offer you my broken heart. Forgive me and heal me. Draw me close to you and hold me where I can truly become myself. Create in me a clean heart, a newborn spirit. Write your love on my soul. I die in your mercy: I surrender my life to you, so that I may have your life alone, and rise to bear the fruit of your love. Open my lips, Beloved, and my life will sing your praise. Amen.
