Tuesday, April 24 — Psalm 54
Leviticus 16:26–18:5; Mark 6:7–13

Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Psalm 36:5

God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4–5

How sweet, God of Easter, are the promises which you bestow on us: your immeasurable love. Your grace which saves us. Your gift of new life in Christ. Accept our grateful shouts of thanks and praise! Amen.
