Thursday, June 1 — Psalm 71:1–8
Proverbs 23; 2 Corinthians 5:16–6:2
He will swallow up death forever. Isaiah 25:8
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the sharing of his sufferings by becoming like him in his death, if somehow I may attain the resurrection from the dead. Philippians 3:10-11
Dear God, may we partake of all the sufferings in our lives in humble obedience to you, and may we be increasingly transformed into the image of Jesus Christ, our Lord, in whose name we pray. Amen.
