Lenten Devotional for March 5

Saint Patrick’s PrayerdevoShepherd

Romans 8:36-39

I’m convinced that nothing can separate us from God’s love in Christ Jesus our Lord: not death or life, not angels or rulers, not present things or future things, not powers or height or depth, or any other thing that is created.
—Romans 8:38-39

Reflect:

Saint Patrick’s Breastplate

Christ be with us, Christ before us, Christ behind us,
Christ in us, Christ beneath us, Christ above us,
Christ on our right, Christ on our left
Christ where we lie, Christ where we sit, Christ where we arise,
Christ in every heart of everyone who thinks of us,
Christ in every eye that sees us.
Christ in every ear that hears us.
Salvation is of the Lord,
Salvation is of the Christ,
May your salvation, O Lord, be ever with us. Amen.

Pray:

Lord, when I find myself wondering how to navigate this confusing, intimidating world, help me to remember that I am not alone because of Jesus, who said, “I am the Good Shepherd.”

Respond:

When you go out today, put on the breastplate of Christ.
