Another Week of the Lenten Bible Reading Challenge

Breaking bread at Emmaus
Dear Friends,

Another Lenten week has flown by! Here are this week's readings for the Bible Challenge:

3/26/12 Acts 16 The Gospel Spreads to Europe 
3/27/12 Acts 26 Paul’s Defense of the Christian Faith 
3/28/12  Romans 3 Justification by Faith Alone 
3/29/12 Romans 7-8 The Battle With Sin; Life in the Spirit 
3/30/12 1 Corinthians 13 The Way of Love 
3/31/12 1 Corinthians 15 The Power of the Resurrection 
4/1/12 Galatians 5 Freedom in Christ 


Here is a prayer you can use prior to reading the Scripture: 

"Illuminate our hearts, O God who loves mankind, with the pure life of Thy Divine knowledge, and open the eyes of our mind to understand Thy Message of Good Tidings. Implant in us the fear of Thy Blessed Commandments; that, trampling down all carnal desires, we may pursue a godly life, both thinking and performing such things as are well pleasing to Thee. For Thou are the Light of our souls and bodies, Christ our God, and to Thee we ascribe glory, together with Thy Eternal Father and Thine All Holy, Blessed and Life-Giving Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen."

May your reading be blessed!
