"When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles." —Psalm 34:17
Dear Lord, I look to the past with awe to see how you delivered your people Israel from oppression and their sin. I look to the present with gratitude for the many graces you make available to me through the Church, and I look to the future with confidence when you will come again in glory and usher in your reign of peace and justice. Help me to persevere in faith.
