Psalter: Psalm 21
Old Testament: 2 Samuel 5:11-16
Epistle: James 5:7-12
God of grace and powerful weakness, at times your prophets were ignored, rejected, belittled, and unwelcome. Trusting that we, too, are called to be prophets, fill us with your Spirit, and support us by your gentle hands, that we may persevere in speaking your word and living our faith. Amen.
