40 DAYS JOURNEY WITH THE LORD.

Thursday after Ash Wednesday, February 18 2021
DAILY CHALLENGE: Help somebody in need, avoid false accusations.
Bible Reading – Isaiah 58: 6-12.
Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward.
Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day:
And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
PRAY WITH ME
Lord, help me to feel with others in difficulties and not thinking only of my own selfish interests and desires.
Let me look at others with love and not to judge and condemn them. May I always remember that Christ died for me even while I was still a sinner. And let your Holy Spirit accompany me to make this journey to the end, and let it bear fruit in my life. Amen.
(Say this prayer as many times as you can, today)
