From Gillian:

Heavenly Father,
Lent is hard.
When we want to watch a show, show us a new opportunity.
When we want to eat something sweet, help us to be sweet to one another.
When we would rather play than pray, let our praise be fun.
And may a Lent that is hard make us better servants of God.
We love you, Jesus.
Amen.
