Lent devotions 2011: Wednesday 30 March

…who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.Philippians 3:21

Lord Jesus Christ, we pray for a strong faith to keep us steadfast on our journey through this life.

You know our human frailty and weaknesses, and often our lack of trust in You, so we pray for Your love and forgiveness and for You to help us share it with others.

Trusting in Christ, who is omnipotent, we will be transformed at the end of our earthly life and be given the greatest gift, eternal life.

Thanks from my heart I offer,
Thee, Jesus, dearest friend
For all that thou didst suffer,
Thy pity without end;
O grant that I may ever
To thy truth faithful be;
When soul and body sever,
May I be found in Thee.

Amen.
