40 DAYS JOURNEY WITH THE LORD. DAY 1


40 DAYS JOURNEY WITH THE LORD

Moderated by: Fr Justin Nzekwe

DAY 1

Bible Reading  – Joel 2:12-18.

Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the Lord your God?

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Let the priests, the ministers of theLord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
Then will the Lord be jealous for his land, and pity his people.

 

PRAY WITH ME

Lord, be with me as I begin this spiritual journey. Do not let me falter on the way, and if I fall, help me to rise as you rose on your way to calvary.

Give me the strength to control my senses and lower appetite. And let your Holy Spirit accompany me to make this journey fruitful in my life. Amen.

(Say this prayer as many times as you can, today)

***If you are interested in the spiritual journey, please let me know through your comments. God bless you. ***
