REFLECTIONS DURING LENT
Scriptural Theme: Matthew 6:31-33
31 Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’
or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’
32 For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things;
and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
33 But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.
What is one thing God is calling me to do differently this year in my life? How will I accomplish it?
What is one thing God is calling me to do differently this year in my church? How will I accomplish it?
How can I get closer to God? List one new spiritual practice to begin during Lent and pray for strength
to continue throughout the year.
I am giving up the following as part of my Lenten fast:
What is one behavior, action or feeling you feel God is calling you to give up this year? Use this Lenten
time to pray that the Holy Spirit give you strength make this change.
What is one prayer I have for my church this year? How can I help make it a reality?
Conclude your daily prayers with the first lines of the prayer of serenity:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
