A Lenten Journey - Discipleship

The poem "A Lenten Journey - A Modern-Day Psalm" has been divided into weekly devotions consisting of a short Lenten meditation followed by a Celebratory Praise. Take some time during the week to reflect on the Lenten meditation—see if you can find some part of yourself in the words and then have a heart to heart conversation with God about it. Then on Sunday, take some time to celebrate the love and grace God has lavished on you. (The poem in its entirety will be posted on Easter Sunday.)

Lord, help me to see the world through Your eyes
to give comfort to those broken and in pain
Enable me to be Your hands and feet,
to feed the hungry, visit the sick and imprisoned,
give water to those who thirst, shelter to the homeless,
clothes and shoes to those in need.
Empower me to reach out Lord God
to my enemies in Your love and mercy
and to forgive those who hurt me.
Holy Spirit, I pray You would preach the Gospel
in my words and deeds each day
and may God be glorified in the offerings of my heart.

Rejoice! Praise the God of heaven and rejoice
for the Lord has made me His disciple.
Hosanna to the King of Glory
for He has reached out to me in His love
with grace and blessings.
He has called me His own!
