Daylight Scripture – I meditate with my heart at night; I complain, and my spirit keeps searching:“Will my Lord reject me forever? Will he never be pleased again? Has his faithful love come to a complete end? Is his promise over for future generations? Has God forgotten how to be gracious? Has he angrily stopped up his compassion?”
Psalm 77: 6-9
Daylight Prayer – God of the creation, Today I pray for myself and all those who sometimes feel lost. Even though our minds may tell us that we are not, our world makes us feel completely abandoned. It caves in some days. It is wicked. It displays its evil side. We become afraid. We wonder…have we been rejected? Lord, have mercy on us, especially on those days when every simple thing goes wrong. Lift us from the dungeons of despair to know that we are not left alone; that you are with us…especially then. Quicken us to your life-giving, perfect Spirit. Amen.
