Moravian Daily Texts

Saturday, October 21 — Psalm 119:49–56
Ezekiel 25:15–27:11; James 5:1–12

And now, O Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in you. Psalm 39:7

Jesus said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.” Luke 8:48

Lord, we are able to face the obstacles of life because of hope in you and your peace that passes all human understanding. Help us in our times of trouble to wait patiently on you to show us the direction we ought to go or the path we need to take. Thank you for caring for us. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
