Thursday, October 13 — Psalm 118:22-29
2 Samuel 3:1–34; John 6:60–71
Restore us to yourself, O Lord, that we may be restored; renew our days as of old. Lamentations 5:21
When the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but according to his mercy, through the water of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit. Titus 3:4-5
Restoring, transforming Lord, we praise you for the gift of rebirth that you offer to us each day. We receive it with joy and share it with a world in need. Amen.
