Help for Lent from Brother Lawrence

"My God, since You are with me, and since it is Your will that I should apply my mind to these outward things, I pray that You will give me the grace to remain with You and keep company with You.

But so that my work may be better, Lord, work with me; receive my work and possess all my affections."

-- Brother Lawrence, The Practice of the Presence of God, published in 1691

In peace,

The Rev. Linda McCloud
The Episcopal Church of Our Savior at Honey Creek
