Monday, September 5 — Psalm 105:23–36
Judges 19; Luke 22:39–51
Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of sheer silence. 1 Kings 19:11–12
The Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17
Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us! Open our eyes to the needs of the poor; open our ears to the cries of the suffering; open our hearts to the pain of the lonely. On this day, God, make us blessings to your people. Amen.
