Lenten Prayer from Nigeria


God in heaven,
You have helped my life to grow like a tree. 
Now something has happened. 
Satan, like a bird,
has carried in one twig of his own choosing after another. 
Before I knew it he had built a dwelling place and was living in it. 
Tonight, my Father, I am throwing out both the bird and the nest.
