Today’s Reading:

Psalm 4 Answer me when I call, O God of my right! You gave me room when I was in distress. Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer. How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame? How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies? But know that the Lord has set apart the faithful for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him. When you are disturbed, do not sin; ponder it on your beds, and be silent. Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the Lord. There are many who say, “O that we might see some good! Let the light of your face shine on us, O Lord!” You have put gladness in my heart more than when their grain and wine abound. I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety.

Food for thought:

Sometimes we call and it doesn’t feel like God is answering us. But all too often it is because we continue to talk and not listen. This day think about ways that you can listen to God’s call upon your life and listen for the ways in which God is speaking to you.

Prayer:

Gracious God, we are thankful that you speak to us. Open our eyes to see the needs in your world. Open our ears to hear the cries of the poor, the suffering, and the marginalized. Open our minds so that when we hear or see the needs of others we are willing to address them. Open our hearts to your power moving around us and between us and within us. In your name we pray, Amen.
