“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)
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.

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.
