The Word of the Lord comes from the Book of Psalm 91:1
He who dwells in the shelter of the Highest will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
How good it is to be as close to God as his shadow and to share in the comfort of his sheltering presence. He is not far if our hearts choose to draw near him. Let’s choose to draw near!
Prayer of the day.
O great Almighty God, tender Shepherd, and Abba Father make known to us your nearness. We long to live in your presence as we try to reflect your holiness and grace. By Jesus’ blood, we draw near to you in full assurance of your love and grace. In the name of Jesus, the name above all names, we pray.
