Elementary:

We begin our prayers today in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Today's story:

"A friend sent me a message that read, "Ahhhh, I fell off the Lent-train!"

Right now the forty days of Lent are looking like a long dusty road with no water in sight. When is Easter?"

The Canadian Football League season is about 65 games. Every team has their share of slumps, injuries, and bad luck. So, what separates first from last? The answer lies somewhere in the realm of endurance. The winners endure the heat and cold, the sun and the rain and all that befalls them in order to achieve their goal of winning the Grey Cup – they tough it out to get where they are going..

Lent, too, is a long season. And our goal is to make it through because "endurance produces character" (Romans 5:4a) which means that struggles can make us stronger in many ways. But it's not all that exciting.

If, somewhere in this Lenten season, you happen to make some mistakes, do not give up! Our Holy Coach is telling us tomorrow we have another game to play... God is all about second chances and new game plans!

We give glory to God's love: 

Glory be to the Father and the Son.  As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen.

We continue our Lenten day in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.​


High School

We begin our prayers today in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Today's story:

"A friend sent me a Facebook message that read, "Ahhhh, I fell off the Lent-wagon." Right now the forty days of Lent are looking like a long dusty road with no water in sight. When is Easter?"

The Canadian Football League season is about 65 games. Every team has their share of slumps, injuries, and bad luck. So, what separates first from last? Usually the answer lies somewhere in the realm of endurance. The winners endure the heat and cold, the sun and the rain and all that befalls them in order to achieve their goal of winning the Grey Cup.

Lent, too, is a long season. Its is a spiritual melting pot through which we endure prayer slumps, emotional injuries, and the bad timing of unfortunate events. And our goal is to endure, because "endurance produces character" (Romans 5:4a).  But it's not all that exciting.

If, somewhere in this season, you happen to fall off the Lent-wagon, do not despair. Our Holy Coach is telling us tomorrow we have another game to play.

We close our prayer.  Glory be to the Father and the Son.  As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen

We continue our Lenten day in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.
