Today’s reading is drawn from Psalm 4:8, Isaiah 54:17, Psalm 3:3, and Joshua 1:9.
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.
No weapon forged against you will prevail.
But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
