- WEEK 2 -

Read and Reflect

Scripture Reading: Genesis 12:1-4

Just as Abram was called to follow God in obedience, so are we. How is the Lord calling you to follow him in this Lenten season?

Reflection:

Have your family members count their blessings by making a list of the things they are thankful for. As your hearts overflow with gratitude for all God has done, consider how you can be a blessing to those in need.

Verse to Memorize

Join with me in suffering for the gospel, relying on the power of God, who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works but according to his own purpose and grace.

Romans 5:19

Fact and Prayer

Around the world, 115 million youth remain illiterate.

(UNICEF, 2019)

Our Creator and Heavenly Father, we pray for all the orphans and abandoned children in this world. Father, watch over these children and bless them with your great mercy and love. Comfort them when they are lonely, feed them when they are hungry, help them be educated. Heal them when they are sick or with fever, protect them and give them a safe place to lay their heads at night, and give these children comfort and peace. In the name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.
