In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
In the morning, while it was still very dark, Jesus got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. Mark 1:35
Holy Father, as we begin our Lenten journey, guide us to pray as you prayed. Help us to hear your voice during this season of preparation. Despite the dark days to come, we know that light and life await us come Easter. Amen.
