The First Week of Lent – Monday

Today take courage, knowing that God does not abandon you. Consider where God may be calling you to speak up or step out in ways that witness to God’s love. Are there people of faith you think of as courageous? What makes them so and how would you want to emulate them?
Almighty God, you call us to be courageous in the faith, taking risks for the sake of the gospel. Forgive us when we shrink from bearing witness to your will and ways. Help us to take the next right and bold step on the Way until we are emboldened to run the race set before us. Amen.
