Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 23


“Betray”

This word is a hard one to ponder. We all have had this happen. And, I believe, we all have done this. It is not a favorite word, but it is a word which reminds us of our need to receive forgiveness as well as the need to forgive others. Though forgiveness is the solution and the prelude is confession, I think the environment is mercy.

Prayer: Lord, every time we turn off mercy we lose the opportunity to wipe away betrayal. Is it our pride which shuts off the spigot of mercy or our own betrayal of being your true disciple? Lord, give us compassion for those who have betrayed us and help us to be grateful for your example of forgiveness. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 22


“Stranger”

Is this word about a person or an event? Certainly it is about something unfamiliar. Is this something we long to experience or someone we can’t wait to meet? We become uncomfortable when confronted with something or someone strange, yet it or they could change our life, for the good. We need to not be afraid.

Prayer: Lord, help us to put our faith in you. When we are confronted with something or someone strange let us remember that you are with us. Let us remember that we need to look forward to what new an unusual things you will unfold before our eyes. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 21


“Judge”

Usually we think this word has only negative connotations, yet for justice to prevail we need a judge. If we have a judge we would want a fair judge. If we long to grow in our goodness we would want a judge that we would redirect us when we error and affirm us when we do things right. I think we would want a fair, but certainly a merciful judge.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for judging us fairly, but also thank you for giving us your mercy. Lord, only you can bring justice, but we ask you provide it gracefully. Help us to trust the eternal righteous judge who is also our Lord and Savior. Amen.
