Dear God, thank you for our friends. Thank you for the fun we can have with them and the happy times we spend together. Please help me to be a good friend. Please help me not to be selfish but to think always of other people and their needs. Amen.

Ash Wednesday, is the first day of Lent. Lent is forty days, leading up to Easter, when we think especially about our relationship with God. It reminds us of the time when Jesus spent forty days in the desert, thinking deeply about his relationship with God, his Father. Lent is a time when we try extra hard to do what is right by trying our best to make the right choices. It is a time to think about how much we love God – and how much he loves us.

Teach us, 0 God, to take a good look at ourselves during Lent
To thank you for the good things
And to ask your forgiveness for the not so good things,
So that, with your help, we can grow
To be all that you would wish us to be. Amen.
