Lenten Reflection for Ash Wednesday 2/13/2013

Psalm am: 95, 32, 143
pm: 102, 130 John 3:1-4:11
Hebrews 12:1-14 Luke 18:9-14

HEAR my PRAYER, O Lord;and let my CRY come to YOU.    —-Psalm 102:1

Out of depth I CRY to YOU, O Lord. Lord, HEAR my VOICE.  —-Psalm 130:1

Lent is a focused time of reflection, penitential prayer, preparation for
Easter and the Resurrection of Jesus. These psalms are prayers for God’s
help. As we journey through these coming forty days, let us affirm the
belief that we place our hope and trust in God. We “cry out” for his
acceptance and forgiveness. We hold it in our hearts that He is ready to
hear us. His mercy is present now and through eternity. In our worldly lives,
as parents, we teach our children to talk to us and say, “I’m sorry,” when
they have done something that is wrong. As we pass through Lent, let us
give our heavenly Father “sincere repentance.” For “I will forgive their
iniquity, and remember their sin no more.” (Jeremiah 31:34) As we wait for
Easter, let us be “Resurrection People,” and give testimony to God’s love,
mercy, and readiness to forgive (through the life, death, resurrection of
Jesus) when we talk to Him daily and say, “I love you Lord, and I am so
sorry.”
