To-day marks the one quarter way through these forty days of preparation and contemplation.
Where am I compared to Day 1?
Spiritually, have I 'progressed'?
Am I closer to the Lord?
Am I more like Jesus?
Am I beginning to see others as God sees them?
... ... ...
Father, You never give up on us, and for that I am thankful.
Help me to never give up either.
More of You, more of You, more of You; as I step aside
Help me to love creatively; to love others like You love me.
Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.
