Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in Heaven, I thank You that the day is coming when You will destroy the wicked, but for those who fear Your name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings, and they will go out and playfully jump like calves from the stall. Help me to walk in Your path by Your Spirit, to shine the light of Your gospel in this world, that others might be the beneficiaries of Your grace rather than the objects of Your wrath. I ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
