Thursday, December 27 — Psalm 148:1–6
2 Kings 25; Acts 7:44–60
Take care, or you will be seduced into turning away, serving other gods and worshipping them. Deuteronomy 11:16
For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
Breaker of oppressions—destroy our allegiance to the lesser gods of our world; prevent us from submitting to yokes of affluence, pride, fame, or power—enfold us in your love which frees us to live forever. For yours are the power and the glory forever. Amen.
