Here are your readings for the day. They come in two forms… a written form and audio form… you are invited to read or listen as best fits what you need for today. Be well, stay home, stay safe and go wash your hands, and if you must go out…wear your mask!
As you read or listen, you are invited to breathe in … and out. Settle in and listen to God’s Word. What is it that you hear today? How is God speaking to you today? What word or phrase jumps out at you… allow yourself to sit with this word or phrase and take it with you throughout the day, letting your heart respond to God in prayer. May your heart be nourished and grounded for today.
Praise the Lord, all you nations!
Extol him, all you peoples!
For great is his steadfast love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord!
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers of the people and elders, if we are questioned today because of a good deed done to someone who was sick and are asked how this man has been healed, let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Israel, that this man is standing before you in good health by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead. This Jesus is
‘the stone that was rejected by you, the builders;
it has become the cornerstone.’
There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among mortals by which we must be saved.”
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and realized that they were uneducated and ordinary men, they were amazed and recognized them as companions of Jesus.
FSConnect Prayer for the Day:
Wednesday, June 3, 2020 Pray for the first responders (Police, EMT and Fire), it is challenging times right now. And while there are some out there that inflict pain and harm on others, there are still good and faithful ones who live into their oath to serve and protect and do so fairly and justly.
Prayer for the Day*:
Breathe on us, breath of God; infuse our everyday lives with a majestic and glory that only comes from your Holy Spirit dwelling in us. Fill our lives with a boldness that isn’t bluster but simply the overflow of your eternal life in us. Amen.
*Today’s prayer is taken from Belgic Confession Art. 11 as written in Seeking God’s Face, Praying with the Bible through the Year.
May the peace of Christ be with you today and always, amen.
