The Lord is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made. - Psalm 145:9 (NRSV)

Today's Prayer
Dear God, open our eyes to see your goodness to us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
