Lent, Day 16: Thursday, February 25, 2016

lent

Good morning, Church. Well, last night’s Prayer Meeting was a real HOOT!! We learned that one of the best things we can do with our prayer lives is learn to pray the wrong way. Yes, yes; you read me right. You see, the wrong way to pray is to pray without any preconceived personal agenda; without any pre-learned, correct prayer formula; without any “right” position or without any “right” words. Maybe this Lenten season is the “right” time to learn how to do prayer “wrong.” I told you it was a real HOOT!! As you read today’s Scripture passages and meditate upon today’s prayer, I want to encourage you to take the risk of experiencing your spiritual relationship with your heavenly Father in a new and dynamic way. Today’s Scripture readings are: Psalm 70, 71; Genesis 42:29-38; I Corinthians 6:12-30; Mark 4:21-34. Today’s Lenten prayer is: “Loving God, I hear Your invitation, ‘Come back to Me,’ and I am filled with such a longing to return to You. Show me the way to return. Lead me this day in good works I do in Your name and send Your Spirit to guide me and strengthen my faith. I ask only to feel Your love in my life today. In Jesus’ inviting name I pray. Amen.” Now, that’s one HOOT of a prayer. Thanks for journeying; Blessings to all–PT.
