Friday, May 4 — Psalm 58
Leviticus 26:1–35; Mark 8:22–38
The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and relents from punishing. Joel 2:13
Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Luke 6:36
God, most merciful and just, we give you thanks for having delivered us from death and despair to life and eternal joy. We ask you to set us free from the need to judge; from the need to condemn. Fill our hearts with rejoicing so that our mouths may be filled with your praise, and then send us into the world to share the good news. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
