Each year during Advent and Lent, I follow a Bible reading plan. I journal a short meditation and write a brief prayer on each day’s reading. The following year, I publish the devotionals on my blog, in a PDF download, and a paperback book.
The meditations being published in 2020 are my personal devotions from Lent 2019. I usually find a reading plan online, but last Lent I did something different. I read through the Epistle to the Romans, dividing the book up into daily readings that took me through Romans between Ash Wednesday and the Saturday before Palm Sunday. For Holy Week, I read Matthew’s account of Jesus’s Passion and Crucifixion, concluding on Easter with the Resurrection. I hope you are blessed by these Scriptures, thoughts, and prayers during this holy season.
Profits from the sale of the paperback version of The Grace of God: Lenten Devotionals will be donated to Love for the Least to share the compassion of Christ with an unreached world. L4L shares the Good News of the Gospel with the least and unreached by making disciples of Jesus who make disciples (2 Tim 2:2) and by helping to meet the physical needs of the poorest of the poor.

May His blessings abound in your time alone with Him.
Or, beginning on Ash Wednesday (February 26), return to this blog every day to read that day’s devotion.
ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made, and dost forgive the sins of all those who are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.~ 1928 Book of Common Prayer, Prayer to be said every day from Ash Wednesday until Palm Sunday
