4th Sunday in Lent
Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from the Living God
Reading : PSALM 23
Meditation : take time and consider this psalm this Sunday morning in Lent.
The LORD is My Shepherd.
What do the words mean for you today?
What is God teaching/reminding you about Himself?
Which words will you hold onto?
And then pray in response – using the verses one by one as you pray
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Pray the Prayer for the Month as your own midday prayer
Some of us come to the season of Lent
with an attitude or practice of self denial
to remind us of your 40 days fasting in the desert.
Whether or not we each do this,
please help us all to use this time
to prayerfully examine our way of life and our commitment to You.
Reading : read these familiar verses again from PSALM 23
Reflect on the words and images and then Pray in response to this God
I say to the LORD, “You are my God.”
Hear my cry for help, LORD!
My Sovereign LORD, my strong defender,
you have protected me in battle.
O LORD, my Good Shepherd,
Hear our evening prayers we ask
As we thank you for the blessings of this Sunday
As we believe and trust in you
As we name others seeking you
As we pilgrimage on into this new week
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
