Thursday, December 3—A 2020 Winter Devotional

“Stir up your might, and come to save us!” Psalm 80:2

“About suffering they were never wrong,
The old Masters: how well they understood
Its human position: how it takes place
While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along;”
Musee des Beaux Arts by W. H. Auden

Hear our prayer, and awaken us to those whose anguished prayers ascend to you, O God. Amen.
