"Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me. This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord."

                                                      Lamentations 3:19-26
  The theme of this scripture reading is "hope in midst of affliction". The key verse in the passage is "Because of the Lord's great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail, they are new every morning: Great is your faithfulness!
  This reminds me of a great old hymn "Great is your Faithfulness! " How great is your faithfulness? Do you include the Lord in your times of trial and tribulations?
  I had a great friend in Milo Miller. He would often come to our house on Friday evenings for Bible study and fellowship. One of the questions often raised was  "why do bad things happen to good people?" He would often answer,  that in times of affliction, that is when Jesus is closest to you. One of his famous catch-phrases was "keep on keeping on". I think that is what God calls us to do when we are in the midst of turmoil.
  I had a very hard time upon Milo's passing. I never really knew how sick he really was. After his funeral, I came home and opened my Bible and read a card that he wrote to me. In it was his catch phrase "keep on keeping on". During this Lenten time we all need to "keep on keeping on" and remember the great sacrifice the Lord did for us.
Instead of the prayer, I leave you with a few words of "Great is your faithfulness"
Great is your faithfulness,
Great is your faithfulness,
Morning by morning, new mercies I see
all that I have your hand hath provided,
Great is your faithfulness Lord unto thee.
