In the morning let us prepare for the new day with the words of the New Testament and in the evening let us reflect on how God moves in the lives of his people.
Morning Reading from the New Testament: Acts 12
Herod killed James and arrested Peter. The church prayed earnestly. An angel led Peter out of prison. An angel struck Herod down.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Job 29-30
“Oh, for the days when God watched over me! When I took my seat in the square. I was father to the needy and comforted the mourners.”
“But now younger men mock me. They do not hesitate to spit at me. God has cast me into the mire. When I expected good, evil came.”
