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 24
Tertullus accused Paul before Felix. Paul said, “I simply went to worship in the temple.” Felix kept Paul in prison for two years.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Psalms 41-43
Blessed are those who consider the weak. My enemies say, “When will he die?” They gather slander. But you, O LORD, have upheld me.
As the deer pants for water, so my soul longs for you, O God. Your waves break over me. Why are you downcast, O my soul? Hope in God.
Vindicate me, O God. Why have you rejected me? Send forth your light and your truth. Why are you downcast, O my soul? Hope in God.
