With my voice I cry to the Lord;
with my voice I make
supplication to the Lord.
2 Kings 6:1-7:20
Threat of war. Elisha advises the king to feed the enemy troops. Peace breaks out--but only for a while.
Two Christian leaders disagree and split up.
Traveling through Macedonia, Paul and Cyrus come to the Roman colony Philippi. One sabbath when they are looking for a place of prayer they come across Lydia, a wealthy woman, a dealer in purple cloth. She is so impressed with their prayers that she and her whole household are baptized.
The discerning person looks to wisdom,
but the eyes of a fool to the ends of the earth.
Foolish children are a grief to their father
and bitterness to her who bore them.
Prayer for Today: At those times when you are in distress because you are being mistreated, use the words of Psalm 142 as your prayer.
