Tuesday, September 6 — Psalm 105:37–45
Judges 20:1–31; Luke 22:52–62
For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with great compassion I will gather you. Isaiah 54:7
God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ. Ephesians 2:4–5
Loving God, we are afflicted with the human condition: what we shouldn’t do, we do anyway; what we know is right, we neglect. The weight of our sin is suffocating. Yet, you still love us. We acknowledge that your love is unmerited; that we are unworthy; and that your grace is a gift. We accept this gift with gladness and praise! Amen.
