Friday, November 21 — Psalm 130
1 Kings 13:23-14:20; John 17:1-19
Daniel said, “My God sent his angel and shut the lions’ mouths so that they would not hurt me.” Daniel 6:22
We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. 1 John 5:18 (NIV)
We know there are lions in our world—those who persecute, hate, oppress, and destroy. Gracious God, our charge is to demonstrate your love to these beasts, so they may turn from evil, while bringing hope to their prey, that they may be safe. Help us in this, we pray. Amen.
