Saturday, January 9 — Psalm 7:10–17
Genesis 10:1–11:9; Matthew 5:1–16
The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Psalm 9:9
Paul wrote: I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ. 2 Corinthians 12:10
Sustaining Creator, in our weakness you give us strength; in hardship, an oasis; in persecution or calamities, protection. You are everything to us, dear Lord. Beyond our temporal concerns you bring love and hope. May we be such beacons in the lives of others. Amen.
