You are the author of all life and have claimed me as your own. In this season of Lent, help my every assumption, action and conversation to begin with love. Bring people and experiences into my life that will expand my understanding of what it means to love and accept those who are different from me. I want to emulate Christ in all I say and do, so break through my heart and instill in me a desire to love indiscriminately and with reckless abandon. In Jesus’ name I pray.
