Graceful obedience

Lent 2013 Cover   John 18:1–19:42

Question for reflection:
What am I holding onto too tightly? What do I need to learn, experience, or do in order to live more trustingly with God?

Prayer for the day:
Help me let go, God, of everything that gets between me and you. Open me to experiences of grace. Compel me toward your promises. Usher me from death into life. Amen.

~ Jonathan Shively, executive director, Congregational Life Ministries
