DayLight Scripture –

Those who are deceived by worthless things lose out on their chance for mercy. But as for me, I will offer you a sacrifice of praise that I have promised, for deliverance belongs to the Lord.

Jonah 2: 8-9

DayLight Prayer –

Lord, Some of us expect to have a rough day, but then the days turn into weeks, then months, and then into years. For all my sisters and brothers in the world who have had a year’s worth of rough days, I pray. I ask that you will strengthen them; keep apathy and despondency away from their doors, and fill them with joy yet again. Amen.

DayLight 9.14.13

DayLight Scripture –

God be merciful to us, and bless us; and cause your face to shine upon us.

Psalm 67:1

DayLight Prayer –

Great God, Thank you for the friendships in my life; those people who love me in spite of my foibles, those who laugh with me, and those who cry with me. What a poor state I would be in if you had not sent them my way. They say that one cannot choose one’s family, which is true most of the time. But friends, I believe, are chosen by you and sent our way and are evidence of your great mercy in our lives. Thank you Lord! Amen.
