Song for the Day: A Mighty Fortress
This hymn I would suggest is like our Team Fight Song! I love the words and the power of the music. We sing this song often on the first Sunday of Lent to remember the foundation of God’s Word, which gives us sustenance and life.

God's Word forever shall abide,
no thanks to foes, who fear it;
for God himself fights by our side
with weapons of the Spirit.
Were they to take our house,
goods, honor, child, or spouse,
though life be wrenched away,
they cannot win the day.
The kingdom's ours forever!
(verse 4 – A Mighty Fortress)
Let us pray: I thank you, my Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and I pray that You would keep me this day also from sin and every evil, that all my doings and life may please You. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen.” (Martin Luther’s Morning Prayer)
