Psalm 57:7–11; Leviticus 25:18–55; Mark 8:14–21

I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you. Psalm 51:13

Jesus said, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.” Mark 1:15

Have mercy on us, O God, have mercy. When we seek the good news of the kingdom, you always show us how to let the Holy Spirit lead. Help us to put our trust in you for all your promises. Amen.
