Monday, November 19 — Psalm 129
1 Kings 11:26–12:24; John 16:5–16
I will not fail you or forsake you. Joshua 1:5
Jesus said, “Your pain will turn into joy.” John 16:20
God of peace who heals all wounds, we trust in scripture’s assurances of eternal joy. We know that you did not forsake your Holy One or leave his body corrupted in the grave. You are faithful and will not forsake us either. In our flesh we shall see you, God of Life. Amen.
