Thursday, November 29 — Psalm 137
1 Kings 20:22–21:16; John 19:25–37
Lord, let me know my end, and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. Psalm 39:4
Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living one. I was dead, and see, I am alive forever and ever; and I have the keys of Death and of Hades. Revelation 1:17–18
Lord of the living, we find our hope in you. We draw close to you and taste eternal life before the shadow of the grave falls on us. As you raised Christ, our Lord, so we trust you will raise us and all who believe in the resurrection of the dead. What withers will bloom again. Amen.
