40 DAYS JOURNEY WITH THE LORD.
Monday, February 22 2021
Moderated by Fr Justin Nzekwe
DAILY THEME: Praying the right way and with a sincere heart.
DAILY CHALLENGE: Do some charity. It must not be money. It could be rendering some help to others.
Bible Reading – Leviticus 19:1–2, 11–18
The LORD said to Moses,
“Speak to the whole assembly of the children of Israel and tell them: Be holy, for I, the LORD, your God, am holy.
“You shall not steal. You shall not lie or speak falsely to one another. You shall not swear falsely by my name, thus profaning the name of your God. I am the LORD.
“You shall not defraud or rob your neighbor. You shall not withhold overnight the wages of your day laborer. You shall not curse the deaf, or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but you shall fear your God. I am the LORD.
“You shall not act dishonestly in rendering judgment. Show neither partiality to the weak nor deference to the mighty, but judge your fellow men justly. You shall not go about spreading slander among your kin; nor shall you stand by idly when your neighbor’s life is at stake. I am the LORD.
“You shall not bear hatred for your brother in your heart. Though you may have to reprove him, do not incur sin because of him. Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against your fellow countrymen. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.”
PRAY WITH ME
Lord, teach me how to pray the right way that pleases you most. May my prayer rise before you like an incense, and the raising up of my hands like an evening oblation. Make me spiritually strong so that the devil will fear me. Activate all my blessings and favours as you hear my prayer this day. And let your Holy Spirit accompany me to make this journey faithfully to the end, so that it may bear fruit in my life. Amen.
(Say this prayer as many times as you can, today)
>Psalm 23:6 (3X)
>Psalm 118:17 (3X)
TOMORROW’S CHALLENGE: Understand people around you.
