Lent Day 22

March 10

Return to the Lord

Hosea 6:1-6

1‘Come, let us return to the Lord;
   for it is he who has torn, and he will heal us;
he has struck down, and he will bind us up.
2 After two days he will revive us;
on the third day he will raise us up,
that we may live before him.
3 Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord;
his appearing is as sure as the dawn;
he will come to us like the showers,
like the spring rains that water the earth.’

4 What shall I do with you, O Ephraim?
What shall I do with you, O Judah?
Your love is like a morning cloud,
like the dew that goes away early.
5 Therefore I have hewn them by the prophets,
I have killed them by the words of my mouth,
and my judgement goes forth as the light.
6 For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice,
the knowledge of God rather than burnt-offerings.

Prayer Thought

Lord, I thank you that your love is stronger and deeper than my rebellion.



The wonderful news is that our Lord is a God of mercy, and He responds to repentance.

—–Billy Graham
