Scripture for the First Friday in Lent

And Jesus said to them, “Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. ~ Matthew 9:15 (ESV)

Lord God, Jesus sacrificed His life for me and my sins, yet I seldom sacrifice to show my love and devotion to You. I need the help of the Holy Spirit to take the time and effort to fast and pray and worship—to focus on You instead of on myself. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
