FRIDAY (June 5, 2020)
In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
“On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.” (John 7:37)
“To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, in you I trust; let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies exult over me. Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame; they shall be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous. Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. Remember your mercy, O LORD, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of your goodness, O LORD!” (Psalms 25:1–7)
The Psalmist does a strange thing here. He calls upon God to remember who He is. He calls upon the God of mercy, of steadfast love, of forgiveness and truth, knowing that God will do what He promises to do. He will save us from our sins and deliver us from evil.
Prayer for Holy Cross Member
Father, we lift up Bill before you this day, asking that You would give him your mercy all the days of his life. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Prayer of the Week (from Sunday)
O God, on this day You once taught the hearts of Your faithful people by sending them the light of Your Holy Spirit. Grant us in our day by the same Spirit to have a right understanding in all things and evermore to rejoice in His holy consolation; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
