Sunday, May 29 — 1 Kings 8:22–23,41–43; Psalm 96:1–9
I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Psalm 143:6
Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
We pause to say within our hearts that we need you, God. Troubles come our way, burdens are heavy, and we can no longer walk the path.
