Keep it simple, Silly: A Lenten prayer

Compassionate God,

Don’t let me overcomplicate Lent. Help me to Keep It Simple, Silly (KISS).


Kind – one act of kindness each day of Lent.

Identity – once a day for forty days say, “God loves me as I am.”

Smile – once a day for forty days, smile at someone.

Silly – once a day for forty days remember: kindness, believing I am loved by God and smiling keeps my Lenten journey simple, Silly.
