Daylight Scripture – Instead, Jonah ran from the Lord. He went to the seaport of Joppa and bought a ticket on a ship that was going to Spain. Then he got on the ship and sailed away to escape.

Jonah 1:3

Daylight Prayer – Dear Lord, today I pray for all who are unhappy with the calling you have given them. You send us to people whom we know you want to have mercy on, but our mercy does not match yours. Rather, we would rather go to Spain!  Help us Lord. For all of us who are dismayed, discouraged, discontent, burned-out and weary, renew our joy and refresh our calling. Get us out of the dark and smelly places we have run to. Amen.
