Lent, the 40 days before Easter, is a time to develop habits which put off the old self and put on the new, living into our new identity in Christ. As a community we’d like to develop habits of prayer and scripture memorization. Each week we are using a different prayer written by Marc Holland from City Life Church. We are also memorizing a verse from Psalm 100, a beautiful Psalm which reminds us of who we are.
The prayer and verse for this week are posted below.
Your actions over millennia shout “LOVE” to me and this world.
I don’t deserve to be your child, yet you have let me into your inner circle – my flakiness, selfishness, waywardness, and all my stubborn mess included. You are with me for the long-haul. That is your love of me. May I reflect it. And live out of thankfulness for it. Through your Spirit’s power, amen.
– Prayer by Marc Holland, City Life Church, Sacramento, CA
Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. – Psalm 100:2
