Prayer for a Restart

How long does it take you to read one of my posts?

Two minutes, perhaps?

Today, I'm going to give you back a minute and a half of your time in exchange for a favor.

Don't worry - it's really quite easy.

You see, this Holy Week, many people are going to make their semi-annual appearance at Church. There will also be many others that show up, as they do weekly, but just go through the motions - unmoved by the miracle of our Mass.

So instead of reading another 90 seconds of me reflecting, I'm asking you to use that time to say a prayer that the Holy Spirit enlightens these people, and strengthens them to "restart" their spiritual lives this Easter season.

Even if our combined prayers help just one soul, this will be the best 90 seconds we spend together all year.

Thank you in advance, and God Bless you.

I am always amazed at what God can do with the soul who gives even just a slight willingness to return to Him. May lukewarm souls be enkindled with the fire of the Holy Spirit this Holy Week.

I like this! It brings to mind that old saying "More of him, less of me". Wonderful!

I always pray that everyone will have a blessed and enlightened Lenten season. It's easy to lose sight of what is truly important in the life in this hurried society we live in. Great post Michael. I hope you are having a good week.
