Lent Day 4: The Blessings of the Week

LeapofFaith_DailyReadings_Horizontal

PREPARE

This is a day to review the graces, or gifts and blessings, of the week. Find a place where you can welcome God’s presence, and ask the Holy Spirit to help you think back over the previous week. What relationships, events, or things have you been grateful for? How has Jesus been present to you in your daily life?

REVIEW OPTION 1

Review one or more Bible passages and devotionals from the previous days (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3). Is there anything in particular that stands out to you? What has Jesus been saying to you so far in the Lent Season?

REVIEW OPTION 2

If you need something simpler, you may choose to meditate and pray on one or more of these questions from the week:

  1. How can you “clear the way” for Jesus’ coming? What actions might you take in order to prepare someone know and serve Jesus?
  2. Jesus calls each one of us to “come” and follow, to know him more and to be more deeply in love with him. Where do you sense this invitation in your life?
  3. Are there any specific ways in which Jesus is asking for your obedience?

PRAY

Based on how you have heard Jesus speak to you, respond with a prayer of commitment, repentance, or petition, or however you feel led.

Close with a prayer of gratitude.
