Today’s Scripture and Prayer for Day 3 of Lent

Always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies… 2 Corinthians 4:10

Lord may I never forget your death for me. Beyond that Lord may I always keep it in mind not morabidly but victoriously. Not morbidly because You willingly died for me. No one took Your life. You gave it up willingly for me.Victoriously because as I focus on Your death for my sin  I am reminded that I am dead to sin.  I can now began living for you because sin has no power over me. It need not reign in me.  Because of Your death, Your cross, I’m free from the slavery to sin. May I apply daily the freedom from sin found in the cross. In Your Name I pray, Amen.
