Thursday, March 2. Read Psalm 32. This psalm is a lament for the suffering that happens when we try to cover up our sin. What pain or shame do you need to release to God’s mercy?
Words from the Word: Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
– Psalm 32:1, NRSV
Audio Lectio: Pray the scripture using audio lectio from Matthew 4:1-11.
Spiritual Tools: As we begin Lent, practice your faith by joining in an Ash Wednesday service. Read the prayer for Ash Wednesday.
