Let your face shine upon your servant; save me in your steadfast love. Psalm 31:16
My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant. Luke 1:46-48
Loving and steadfast God, today we remember that from dust we came, and to dust we shall return. Let our fragile lives remind us to embrace everyday as precious. We pray that our spirits will rest in you, and that our lives will magnify your grace. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
