Lent daybook, 3: be sober-minded, endure suffering

A Lent daybook for these 40 days of prayer. Join me, won't you? (see all 2015 Lent daybook posts here)


Last Judgement
Fra Angelico

The Habit of Perfection by Gerard Manley Hopkins


2 Timothy 4:1-5be sober-minded, endure suffering

{all readings for the day: Psalm 25:1-10;Daniel 9:15-25a;2 Timothy 4:1-5}


Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent:  Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. (source)


Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent
Kember Crabb

Fast for one meal a week, one food item for all of Lent, or one activity or technology for one part of each day.  Do this in order to make space in your life to be more dependent on God to satisfy your cravings and desires.
