Yesterday my friend and pastor Steve Wiens recommended three prayers for Holy Week this year:
1. God, reveal where I’m enslaved and set me free.
2. God, reveal where I’m wandering, and help me remember my covenant.
3. God, reveal where I’m hidden and help me to see.
While thinking about the value of praying these prayers these quotes from Tilden H. Edwards came to mind:
Some of us are more naturally night people or morning people. Our situations further influence what time is best to set aside.

“Sometimes, all we need is a reminder from someone who has walked before us.”
José Navajo was a young burned-out preacher. While spending Mondays with his old retired pastor Jose found his faith reignited.
This began a weekly spiritual direction and mentoring relationship that last for years.
When the old pastor had passed away he left a treasure chest of wisdom behind for José.
“When you read this I will no longer be here. I mean, I will not be at your side, although the reality is that I will be there in the fullest sense of the word: I will have finished my race, and I will be enjoying the long-awaited reward of gazing at my Lord face-to-face.”
