Wednesday, April 1 — Psalm 43
Exodus 37; Matthew 27:32–44
I will delight in my people; no more shall the sound of weeping be heard in [Jerusalem], or the cry of distress. Isaiah 65:19
Jesus said to the disciples, “So you have pain now; but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.” John 16:22
Comforting and restoring God, in the pain of our mortality we pray to keep our eyes fixed on your divinity. Let us be joyful for the coming reconciliation and let us share that joy with all. Amen.
