Wednesday, July 3, 2024 — Psalm 81:6–10
Deuteronomy 12; Luke 7:1–17

Rend your hearts and not your clothing. Return to the Lord your God! Joel 2:13

You were bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:20

Lord, God, among and within us are pressures causing us to withdraw and turn inward, closing ourselves off for self-protection. Instead, enable us to turn to the Christ in whom we find the way out of ourselves, discovering life to be found in serving others in ministries that bring mercy, justice, and encouragement. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
