Lent 2010, Day 28

Now, therefore,” says the LORD, “ Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” So rend your heart, and not your garments; return to the LORD your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm. who knows if He will turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind Him. . . Joel 2:12-14
The US is in a particularly vulnerable situation during this Lent. Give up the cream in your coffee or between meal snacks and pray for your country this weekend especially. As Tennyson said, "More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of." Prayer is spiritual dynamite, not a wistful last resort.
