Scripture for First Thursday in Lent

And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. ~ Luke 9:23 (ESV)

Lord, I want to follow You, but it’s so easy to get caught up in the cares and temptations of the world. Help me to put You first in my life. Empower me by the Holy  Spirit to deny myself and take up my cross daily. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
