Daily Word for Lenten Season - February 23


The image of Bread has so many facets. The rounded loaf. The smell of the baking. The crisp crust with soft warm insides. The taste of it freshly buttered. The thought of bread touches so many senses. When we think of God, how many senses do we use? 

Prayer: Most holy God help us to have a greater sense of who you are. Help us to see you in the waving trees. Help us to smell you in the blooming flowers. Help us to touch you as we feel the variety of textures in your creation. Help us to taste the wonder found in so many different culinary bites. You bring variety and abundance to our lives. Thank you.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - February 22


The intimate word for Father or many people translate this as “Daddy.” It is difficult to think of God as our “Daddy” at times, for various reasons, but as we pause this Lenten time perhaps we can think of the one who gives us the hug when most needed. Or perhaps he is the one who smiles proudly at an accomplishment of ours. What is your “Daddy” doing to love you?

Prayer: Thank you “Daddy” for being there for me. Help me to receive your love. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - February 20


Words can bring life or words can bring harm. Words can describe the beauty in this world or words can complain about all that is wrong. Words bring wonder and joy, but words can also bring despair and sadness. Let us use words which bring grace and peace, those are the most powerful words of all.

Prayer: Lord, help us to use our words to speak your words to others this day. Amen.
