God’s Love

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” —Helen Keller

PRAYER: (from the Lectionary)

“Almighty God, You know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, AMEN.”

SCRIPTURES: (from the Lectionary)

Exodus 17:1-7
Romans 5:1-11
John 4:5-42
Psalm 95

God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners (Romans 5:8 NLT).

PRAYER FOCUS: God’s Love

Some days the words fall short of what other media can express. We stumbled across the video below that captures the heart of today’s Monday Prayer.

Remember, Christian—God loves you. More than you can imagine. And He will never stop loving you.

Never Been Unloved

It’s Monday Morning. As we move into the third week of Lent, remember that it’s about God’s Love. Let Him love you, Christian. Rest in Him.

    Morning. I had never heard the song. It’s words while simple go to the heart of life. Lent this year is a time of focusing on oneness with Christ, being rejuvenated. Thank you for all the effort you put into the Monday prayer. It is a true blessing to our week.
