My thoughts (David Zier):
As I read today’s psalm, it reminded me of Mary Stevenson’s poem, “Footprints in the Sand.” Leona Lewis has a powerful song and video, using the words of the poem as inspiration. Please view the video for today’s reflection.
Prayer for the day: God, always stay with me, especially in times when I need you most. Christ, carry me when I need rest. Amen.
We encourage you to include a time of prayer with this reading. If you need a place to get started, consider the suggestions on the How to Pray page.
