Daylight Scripture – Jesus began to teach beside the lake again. Such a large crowd gathered that he climbed into a boat there on the lake. He sat in the boat while the whole crowd was nearby on the shore. He said many things to them in parables.
Mark 4: 1-2a
Daylight Prayer – Lord of Heaven, I would like to have been on that shore that day. I would like to have seen you climb into that boat, take your seat, and teach. I would have loved to have heard your words with my ears and felt them in my heart. Even so Lord, I am grateful that men did hear you and have given us some of the words you said on the days you were here. I thank your for the Holy Bible. Keep me, keep us all ready to take up that book everyday. Help us to glimpse that seashore, to catch the scent of the sea breeze, and feel the sand between our toes. Let the love of your grace transform us by the power of your presence that we can find in your word. Amen.
