Daily Lenten Prayer for February 26, 2009
Opening Prayer: Lord, with Your loving care guide the penance we have begun. Help us to persevere with love and sincerity. Amen.
Scripture Readings: Isaiah 58:1-9 Matthew 9:14-15
Meditation: The prophet Isaiah reminds us that our Lenten sacrifice should involve love and mercy for the hungry, the oppressed and the homeless. How often do I think about and pray for my brothers and sisters in need? What can I do to make their lives better, and to help them know how much God loves them?
Closing Prayer: Merciful Father, may the gifts and blessings we receive bring us pardon and salvation. Amen.
Father John Madigan, O.M.I on Pilgrimage
