It is difficult to plough on in the Lord’s vineyard by our own merit. Even more so in the season of Lent, which is a time of wondrous Grace if we knew how to tap on to God’s abundant love.

Here are a couple of Scripture texts that may enable us to draw closer to God.

Baruch 3: 1-2 “O Lord God Almighty, O God of Israel, the soul in anguish and the wearied spirit cry out to you. Hear us O Lord and have mercy for we have sinned before you.”

Psalm 130: 1-2 “Out of the depths, my soul cries out to You O Lord. Oh Lord hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.”
