Tuesday, June 2

Opening Prayer: Almighty God, You help are an ever present help in trouble. I need You guiding my steps in the good times and the difficult, remind me of Your presence in my life today. Amen.

Read: Exodus 16:1-7
Reflect: What do the people remember about Egypt? Do you think the people’s grumbling against the Lord is a good example? Why do you think God responds favorably to the grumbling of the people?

Prayer: for the church, for others, and for myself

Hymn: “Nearer, Still Nearer”
Nearer, still nearer, close to Thy heart,
Draw me, my Savior-so precious Thou art!
Fold me, O fold me close to Thy breast.
Shelter me safe in that haven of rest;
Shelter me safe in that haven of rest.

Nearer, still nearer, nothing I bring,
Naught as an offering to Jesus, my King-
Only my sinful, now contrite heart.
Grant me the cleansing Thy blood doth impart;
Grant me the cleansing Thy blood doth impart;

Nearer, still nearer, Lord, to be Thine!
Sin, with its follies, I gladly resign,
All of its pleasures, pomp and its pride.
Give me but Jesus, my Lord, crucified;
Give me but Jesus, my Lord, crucified.

Nearer, still nearer while life shall last,
Till safe in glory my anchor is cast;
Through endless ages ever to be
Nearer, my Savior, still nearer to Thee;
Nearer, my Savior, still nearer to Thee.

Closing Prayer: “Love the Lord your God…walk in all his ways…obey his commands…hold fast to him…serve him with all your heart and all your soul” (Joshua 22:5)
