Monday

Read Psalm 80:1-7

Listen to us, O Shepherd of Israel;
   hear us, leader of your flock.
Seated on your throne above the winged creatures,
2     reveal yourself to the tribes of Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh.
Show us your strength;
   come and save us!
3 Bring us back, O God!
   Show us your mercy, and we will be saved!
4 How much longer, Lord God Almighty,
   will you be angry with your people's prayers?
5 You have given us sorrow to eat,
   a large cup of tears to drink.
6 You let the surrounding nations fight over our land;
   our enemies insult us.
7 Bring us back, Almighty God!
   Show us your mercy, and we will be saved!

Think

“Bring us back, Almighty God! Show us your mercy, and we will be saved.” (Verse 3 & 7)
The people of Israel pray that God would bring them back from exile.  In what ways do we exile ourselves from God’s presence?

Pray

Bring us back, O God!  Show us your mercy, and we will be saved!
