Wednesday, October 4 — Psalm 115:9–18
Ezekiel 8,9; Hebrews 11:4–16
We have heard with our ears, O God, our ancestors have told us, what deeds you performed in their days, in the days of old. Psalm 44:1
And what more should I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets—who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions, quenched raging fire, escaped the edge of the sword, won strength out of weakness. Hebrews 11:32–34
Holy Father, may the witness of your faithful followers of old inspire us to boldly live out the faith we own. May we be challenged to serve those in need, no matter how difficult it may seem. May we remember your son’s sacrifice and remember our need to serve you. Amen.
