Day 4

God of All Mercy

from the Jesus, Keep Me Near The Cross reading plan

1 John 1:5-10

Text: 1 John 1:5-10

A beautiful Saturday to you, dear friends!

As we walk through this season of reflection and repentance together, we want to provide time and space for us as individuals and a community to meditate on God’s Word and bow at His feet in prayer.

Each Saturday during Lent we will read a brief passage of Scripture and a corporate prayer, both carefully chosen for this specific place in our Lenten journey. Sundays will be dedicated to scripture memorization, one of our favorite habits here at She Reads Truth.

We pray you will not only meet with the Savior on these quieter weekend days, but linger there with Him, in prayer and in His Word.


Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

– from The Book of Common Prayer

    What does walking in the darkness mean? Not repenting? Because we all sin and in some ways walk in the darkness.

      Stephanie, walking in darkness is more like submerging yourself or aligning yourself with things that are not light (Jesus).
