Monday, January 1, 2024 — Psalm 1
Genesis 1:1–2:3; Matthew 1:1–17

Take heed, be quiet, do not fear, and do not let your heart be faint. Isaiah 7:4

Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me. He has sent me to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” Luke 4:18,19,21

O God of new beginnings, like years past, the year ahead will bring its own experiences of success and joy, as well as failure and loss. Help us meet the unwritten with faith and the assurance of your presence. Amen.
