Lent Daybook, 28: are there any who seek after God?

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


Day 5, Lent 2016
Paul Soupiset

God looks down from heaven
    on the children of man
to see if there are any who understand,
    who seek after God.
all readings for the day: Psalm 53; Leviticus 25:1-19; Revelation 19:9-10


Almighty and most merciful Father, we are thankful that your mercy is higher than the heavens, wider than our wanderings, deeper than all our sin. Forgive our careless attitudes toward your purposes, our refusal to relieve the suffering of others, our envy of those who have more than we have, our obsession with creating a life of constant pleasure, our indifference to the treasures of heaven, our neglect of your wise and gracious law. Help us to change our way of life so that we may desire what is good, love what you love and do what you command, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (source)

Take time today to talk with God about areas in your life you have not yet surrendered to Him. Ask for His help in learning to ask for His will, not yours. (source)
