Monday, April 24 — Psalm 53

Job 29; 1 Corinthians 5:9–6:8

May those who love your salvation say continually, “Great is the Lord!” Psalm 40:16

Jesus said, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today.” So he hurried down and was happy to welcome him. Luke 19:5–6

Care for us this day as a shepherd cares for the flock. We praise you and honor you through our service and through spreading your gospel message. In our world of uncertainty and change we give thanks for your constant presence and guidance. Help to free us from the trials of today and lead us to the hopes of tomorrow. Amen.
