Prayer of the Day

Mar 24, 2019

THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT
Lord Jesus Christ,
I thank You for loving me so completely.
You embraced the cross so willingly,
You hung there so patiently,
You suffered so painfully,
and for me, a sinner, You died and rose
again on the third day.

Now, Lord, I commit myself to Your love,
to the power of Your passion,
to the depths of Your endless mercy.

Jesus Christ,
in Your measureless pity,
keep alive in me the memory of Your holy
wounds and bitter death.

Gentle Jesus,
defend me in all danger,
and keep me so that I may stand before
You in joy. Protect my soul, Lord Jesus
Christ, which You have bought with
Your precious blood. Amen.
