TODAY’S WORD…

.

Turn again, O God of hosts;
look down from heaven, and see;
have regard for this vine,
the stock that Your right hand planted.
.

But let your hand be upon the One at Your right hand,
the One whom You made strong for Yourself.
Then we will never turn back from You;
give us life, and we will call on Your name.

.

Restore us, O Lord God of hosts;
let Your face shine, that we may be saved.

.

– Psalm 80:14-15,17-19 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

These verses, when recited as a prayer, become our own appeal to the Lord,

to come back and defend us against all evil that exists;

to break His apparent silence:

Turn again, O God of hosts;
look down from heaven, and see;
have regard for this vine.

.

Indeed, to defend His beloved vine

God sent His One and only Son

to teach and encourage all those with goodwill in their hearts,

and to lead them to true everlasting freedom.

.

As we pray that the face of the Lord will once again shine upon us,

we must be restored through renewed trust

and through faithful prayer to God our Saviour.

We, His people, must return to Him in fidelity.

.

If we turn away from sin,

the Lord will restore us

and He will let His face shine, that we may be saved.

.

With this conviction in our hearts as we pray,

our hearts are filled with never-ending hope

and with the knowledge that the Lord keeps His promise.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Let Your face shine on me, Lord Jesus, and give me life!
