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

Psalm 77I am so troubled that I cannot speak

{all readings for the day: Psalm 77;Job 4:1-21;Ephesians 2:1-10}


Then I said, “I will appeal to this,
    to the years of the right hand of the Most High.”
11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
    yes, I will remember your wonders of old.
12 I will ponder all your work,
    and meditate on your mighty deeds.
13 Your way, O God, is holy.
    What god is great like our God?
14 You are the God who works wonders;
    you have made known your might among the peoples.
15 You with your arm redeemed your people,
    the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah

Lord, have mercy; Christ, have mercy; Lord, have mercy. Amen.

Sit in total stillness for 5 minutes today.  How does it feel?


*I followed the brothers at the Society of St. John the Evangelist (Boston) during Advent and just discovered their Lent offering, a daily practice themed to the rhythm of Stop.Pray.Work.Play.Love.  Good, simple practices for our Lenten journey.*
