Complete Schedule for Lent

A Quiet Place for Prayer

O Lord, my God, give me the grace today to find a quiet place with You amid the hustle and business of my life, and to turn away from the numerous voices and distractions of my life to seek Your voice. Jesus found Your voice in today’s Gospel on the Mount of Olives. Noise and distractions were silenced in that place for Him and other Jews who looked to know Your will. This connection with You helped Him to focus on His divine mission You gave Him. I believe Jesus showed me the need to find a time and place to retreat to and pray. Give me the grace today to find my place to spend with You in silence and prayer. It may well be the time I need to know Your will for me in my life. Amen.
