prayer diary Ash Wednesday 14 Feb 2018 (Day of Special Observance; & of Discipline and Self-denial)

'Whenever you give alms … whenever you pray ... whenever you fast … (do so so that you) may be seen not by others but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.' 
Matthew 6, 5-6, 16-18

Fasting, prayer, and alms-giving are part of our traditional Lenten disciplines because they are something that Christ expected his followers to do. How can anyone doubt the spiritual rewards that come with them, when it was our Lord himself who promised them?
