The 3rd Friday in Lent 2019

He regards the prayer of the destitute and does not despise their prayer. Psalm 102:17

When destitute, it sometimes feels no one listens.

We cry out for help and think God does not hear.

Yet, the practice of God's love resides in the waiting upon Him.

His love beckons to us from every page of Holy Scripture.

Much of prayer is first hearing his Word.

Then, we reply in love through prayer.

His love shines through destitution to hear our prayers.

His love shines through destitution to encourage us in our prayers.


Almighty God, assist us in our destitute times to stay in your Holy Word. Help us to reply to your love with our words of nees to you. We ask all this, encouraged by your Word, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
