Today’s Prayer to Passage is from the daybook ‘Grace for the Moment’ by Max Lucado.
Today I pray, “Dear God, What is Your lullaby for the closing of this day? Amen.”
Following my prayer, I opened the daybook to the following passage:
Confident in the Father
The LORD comforts his people and will have pity on those who suffer.
“If you’ll celebrate a marriage anniversary alone this year, [God] speaks to you.
If your child made it to heaven before making it to kindergarten, he speaks to you. …
If your dreams were buried as they lowered the casket, God speaks to you.
He speaks to all of us who have stood or will stand in the soft dirt near an open grave. And to us he gives this confident word: ‘I want you to know what happens to a Christian when he dies so that when it happens, you will not be full of sorrow, as those are who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and then came back to life again, we can also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him all the Christians who have died.’
(1 Thess. 4:13-14 TLB)
