Lent, the 40 day period in the lead up to Easter, is a special period of reflection for many Christians. We begin our Verse of the Week for Lent with the following from Psalm 42.
As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God – v1
Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Saviour and my God – v5
