Prayer for Lent

With Lent starting tomorrow (Ash Wednesday), I want to offer the following way to pray for others. I'm also going to pray this for myself, so that during this period I can grow in understanding, wisdom, and the ability to act as God would want.  Here are the verses from Colossians 1:9-10, in The Living Bible translation, which somehow brings them to life for me:

"So ever since we first heard about you we have kept on praying and asking God to help you understand what he wants you to do; asking him to make you wise about spiritual things; and asking that the way you live will always please the Lord and honor him, so that you will always be doing good, kind things for others, while all the time you are learning to know God better and better."
