Day 127: Kindness for the House of Saul

2 Samuel 9:1-13 David sought out surviving family or servants of the late Saul to ensure that they were properly cared for. He gave all of Saul's possessions to Jonathan’s disabled son and invited him to dine at his table, and Ziba and his family were given the care of Saul’s estate. David thus showed himself to be a generous, merciful, and caring monarch. (CCC 1807)

Psalm 28 This psalm laments God’s apparent silence with the realization that he is the source of all life and that our existence depends on him. The psalmist asks God to impart his justice on sinners and strength and protection for himself; at the end of the psalm, he asks the same for the people and the anointed one, the king.

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven we give you praise and thank you so much. Lord God, we thank you for this day. We thank you for this season of our lives. We thank you for guiding us and speaking to us for the last 127 days, and shaping our eyes, our hearts, our minds by your Word and by who you truly are, who you are calling us to be. We ask that you please fill us with the spirit of courage. Fill us with a singleness of purpose. Fill us with the wisdom to be able to know which actions to take and to know which actions to refrain from taking. We make this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.”
