A steadfast spirit

Despite our best intentions to remain in right relationship with our God, we occasionally act in ways that break that connection and we experience sin – alienation from God, from others and from ourselves. Lent is a time to ask God to ‘put a steadfast spirit’ in us so that we can pick ourselves up and accept the help of our merciful God. O God, give me again the joy of your help; with a spirit of fervour sustain me.
