Great Sabbath

Saturday, April 15 — Psalm 50:1–6

Job 19; 1 Corinthians 1:10–20

Remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power. Deuteronomy 8:18

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, “Woman, here is your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home. John 19:26–27

O Lord, we recall this day how Jesus’ mother was filled with sorrow and stood by the cross; help us in our sorrows to share in your sufferings. We wait with anticipation for the day He rises again in glory. In your goodness, help raise up your faithful people to love and serve you this day and always. Amen.
