Lent daybook, 4: when I am lifted up from the earth

My Lent daybook for these 40 days of prayer. Join me, won't you? (see previous Lent daybook 2016 posts here)

Marc Chagall

Jesus answered, “This voice has come for your sake, not mine. Now is the judgment of this world; now will the ruler of this world be cast out. And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” He said this to show by what kind of death he was going to die. 

So the crowd answered him, “We have heard from the Law that the Christ remains forever. How can you say that the Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man?” 

So Jesus said to them, “The light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.”  


  • Gracious and merciful God,
    you see into the secret places of our hearts,
    where we mourn our sins.
    As we turn again to your grace, receive our prayers.

    Include prayers here for your family, friends, neighborhood and the world

    Look with mercy on our contrite hearts,
    wash from us the stain of iniquity,
    and create a new and right spirit in us,
    that we may declare your praise
    and offer an acceptable sacrifice in these Lenten days;
    through Christ Jesus, who bore our sins on the cross. Amen.

If weather permits, take a silent walk today. Experience the beauty of outdoors. As you are walking, consciously dwell with the Lord in the experience. Be grateful for his kindness and favor to you.  (source, Wilderness Time: A guide for spiritual retreat)
