Lent 2018

Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Lent

Read

The Seven Penitential Psalms, Day Six:

We return to the penitential psalms we explored last week.

(During times when we wish to express repentance and especially during Lent, it is customary to pray the seven penitential psalms.  The penitential designation of these psalms dates from the seventh century. Prayerfully reciting these psalms will help us to recognize our sinfulness, express our sorrow and ask for God's forgiveness.)

Today we will focus on Psalm 130.

Reflect

Read a reflection of Psalm 130—Prayer for Pardon and Mercy.

Pray

"Out of the depths I call to you, LORD; Lord, hear my cry! May your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy." (Ps 130:1-2)

Act

From great depths of his soul, the psalmist cries out to the Lord in anguish. But he waits for the Lord, he looks for the Lord, and he hopes in the Lord.

Listen to a recording of Psalm 130 as you follow along with your Bible.
