Friday, August 16 — Psalm 99
Jeremiah 12:1–13:19; 2 Thessalonians 3:6–18
I, the Lord, am the vineyard’s keeper; every moment I water it. I guard it night and day so that no one can harm it. Isaiah 27:3
God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his.” 2 Timothy 2:19
Compassionate Lord, we ask your continued protection from forces of evil and hate. As we journey through life, may we be reminded that only your judgment counts. Forgive us when we fall short, and guide us back to you. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
