Moravian Daily Texts


Friday, January 19 — Psalm 14
Genesis 22; Matthew 8:5–22

The promises of the Lord are promises that are pure, silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times. Psalm 12:6

You will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. Philippians 2:15–16 (NIV)

Lord, you never promised us that life would be easy. However, you did promise to be with us through it all. May our trust in your promise witness to the joyful hope that we have in you. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
