As you begin, take three deep breaths to center yourself.
Dear Jesus, through baptism into your death and resurrection, we have died to ourselves and been raised in you. Lord, transform us. Give us the strength to turn from sin and all that would keep us from you. May we turn instead toward you – the one who gives us new life. In Jesus’ name we pray, AMEN.
Close with the Lord’s Prayer, taking your time as you say this prayer.
