Thursday After Ash Wednesday // March 7, 2019

Help me to grow in patience, understanding and forgiveness. Today Pray:  For those who are suffering in mind, body or spirit and for those who care for them. Conclude Your Prayer With:  Lord, may my Lenten practices increase my love for you and deepen my confidence in the great love you have for me. Daily Scripture Reflection: “Then Jesus said to all, ‘If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily*, and follow me." –Luke 9:23
