From Today's Office
The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer.
Psalm 6:9
Truth worth basing our life upon comes through revelation. This kind of truth is not something that we have thought up or figured out. It is something God has revealed to us directly by his spirit. When we hear from God and are willing to own up to our hearing from him, we please God. —Ronald E. Minor, You’ll Never Walk Alone, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day

Lord Jesus, your disciples discovered that trying to tell you what to do was not a great idea—that assuming that you didn’t realize what was happening was presumptuous. Yet I find myself wanting to inform you of what is happening to me as if you didn’t know. Grant me the faith to just relax into knowing you have my life in your hands today. Amen.
