Monday, April 25 — Psalm 54
Leviticus 16:26–18:5; Mark 6:7–13
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The Lord is king!” 1 Chronicles 16:31
Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:18-20
Gracious Lord and God, “…keep your bishops and ministers sound in doctrine and holy in life. May everyone who serves the church be faithful, not only in great matters, but also in the smallest things…to our life’s end.” Amen.*
