Tuesday, February 25th

DAY 1

MORNING PRAYER
God our Father,
The Bible reminds us that your love for each of us is great 
and that you are faithful forever, 
never letting us down or forgetting your promises to us. 
On this day before Ash Wednesday, 
help us to look at things we want to change 
so that we can pray more, give more, and fast from things that distract us.   
We ask this in the Name of Jesus, your son. 
Amen
