Refocus on what matters through prayer.

Take a deep breath…

Silencing the noise in our lives takes time, but it’s one of the reasons for Lent. Today, refocus your life on Jesus by praying with us.

A Prayer to Refocus

God, I want more of You.

Too often, I choose to pursue momentary things and push You aside. Please forgive me, and change me. I don’t want to live a life that isn’t focused on You.

As I prepare for Resurrection Sunday, help me to silence the noise in my life. Show me what steps I need to take to refocus my heart, mind, and will on You alone.

Search my heart, and know me. Clean out my life, point out anything that offends You, and make me more like You. Show me the paths that lead to life, and fill me with joy in Your presence.

I love You, and I want to fix my eyes on You.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prepare for More

Right now, what’s fighting for your attention and keeping you from going deeper with God?

Silencing the noise in our lives takes time, but it’s one of the reasons why many Christians practice Lent. The purpose of Lent isn’t to “better” your life, but to recenter your life on what matters most: the One who made you and died for you.

During Lent, refocus and prepare for Resurrection Sunday by drawing near to God through the following Bible Plans. (And, all of these Plans can also count toward the 21-Day Challenge.)
