Wednesday, third week of Lent
Let my steps be guided by Your promise; may evil never rule me.
Grant, we pray, O Lord,
that, schooled through Lenten observance
and nourished by Your word,
through holy restraint,
we may be devoted to You with all our heart
and be ever united in prayer.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
Deuteronomy 4:1, 5-9 (God’s law gives justice, intelligence and wisdom)
Psalm 147:12-13, 15-16, 19-20 “Praise the Lord, Jerusalem”
+Matthew 5:17-19 (Jesus came to fulfill the law, not abolish it)
Break the least;
become the least.
The little things
But the reverse
is also true;
if you uphold and teach
you’ll be great
both here on earth
and ever more.
That’s what they’re for!
Am I accepting God’s invitation to greatness?
