Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 22


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


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.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 19


Something we have been given that makes us unique. An opportunity, a responsibility, and a gift. We can think. We can choose. We can act.

Prayer: Lord, help me to discern the choices I have. Help me to use my understanding in the decision process. Help me to follow through. To God be the glory. Amen.
