Sunday, May 16 — Acts 1:15-17,21-26; Psalm 1
1 John 5:9-13; John 17:6-19

Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away. Psalm 90:10 NIV

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

Grant us comfort, courage, and hope, dear Lord, so that our sorrows and troubles may turn to joys and peace. Strengthen us for the living of each day. Amen.
