Day 73: Sunday, April 2
PALM SUNDAY - God of love, guide me along paths that draw me closer to You. Though I may encounter praise, anger, betrayal, and more, let my focus remain on You rather than myself. Help me respond in love to those near me.
Day 74: Monday, April 3
Today I pray to act and advocate against the weaponization of hate and hurt. Show me how to keep firearms out of the hands of those with murderous intent. Help me to heal my brothers and sisters before they’re drawn to kill.
