Psalm 36 Exodus 20:22–21:27; Matthew 23:33–39

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in mortals. Psalm 118:8

Let us approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

O listening God, as you have been our refuge and help in times past, we trust that in and with you we can still find safety, respite, and restoration. Our confidence is in you and to you we will turn to satisfy our needs. Thanks be to you, living God. Amen.
