Moravian Daily Texts


Saturday, January 20 — Psalm 15
Genesis 23:1–24:25; Matthew 8:23–34

God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. Genesis 1:3

God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts. 2 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV)

Illuminate our minds, Lord Jesus, to recognize the needs of those around us. Open our hearts to share the burdens of our sisters and brothers as we hold one another in the light. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
