Saturday, January 22 — Psalm 16:1-6
Genesis 24:26–67; Matthew 9:1–13
All the boots of the tramping warriors and all the garments rolled in blood shall be burned as fuel for the fire. Isaiah 9:5
By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. Luke 1:78-79
Gracious God, we know that you are the ruler of the universe. Too often, our earthly pilgrimage is clouded by injustices of the rich and powerful. Keep us mindful in these challenges to stay within your truth and goodness. Amen.
