Scripture Lessons

I Kings 19:9-18

Psalm 85:8-13

I will listen, O Lord God, to what you are saying,

for you speak peace to your faithful people, and to those who turn their hearts to you.

Truly, your salvation is very near to those who honor you,

that your glory may dwell in our land.

Mercy and truth have met together;

righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

Truth shall spring up from the earth,

and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

O Lord, you will indeed grant prosperity,  

and our land will yield its increase.

Righteousness shall go before you,  

and peace shall be a pathway for your feet.


Matthew 14:22-33
