Day 7 of Lent

Prayers and Scripture for Lent
Day 7

Jesus said to His disciples:

"In praying, do not babble on like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words.

Do not be like them."

Matt 6:7-8a



Our Father,

who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day, our daily Bread, and forgive us our trespasses.

As we, forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.



He is so faithful...He even tells us how we are to pray:)

I love the book of Matthew.



  1. Wow...this particular scripture and prayer have been in my heart this week.. I have two funerals to attend this Thursday and it has really been a difficult week for our community. I have prayed so much, but I felt as if my words were just not coming out the way I needed them to...I had to admit to God that the words I wanted to say just would not come out and that I needed HIM to help me....
    Thank you for sharing...I love the sweetness of our God!

  2. jill, thanks for the comment about zoe and scout. yes, it's true that dogs teach us so much about love.
