prayer for today from Evening Prayers For Every Day of the Year by Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt :
Spiritual practice for today:
This week, fast from spending money. Let each necessary purchase remind you of the reality of our complete poverty and helplessness before God and without the work of Christ.
Instead of spending practice giving. Almsgiving is a traditional Lenten practice. This week pray that the Lord would show you his face in the most distressing of your neighbors, and lead you to ways that you can show compassionate mercy.
