When the Pharisees challenged Jesus because his disciples were apparently working on the Sabbath, Jesus answered, “The Sabbath was made for people, not people for the Sabbath”. (Mark 2:27)
While celebrating the Sabbath, do as much good as you can, as well as on every other day of the week!
Lord Jesus, help me to identify my own faults rather than quickly pass judgement on others. May I see only good, in everyone that I meet today.
Prayer – All Needs
We beg you, Lord,
to help and defend us.
Deliver the oppressed.
Pity the insignificant.
Raise the fallen.
Show yourself to the needy.
Heal the sick.
Bring back those of your people who have gone astray.
Feed the hungry.
Lift up the weak.
Take off the prisoner’s chains.
May every nation come to know that you alone are God,
that Jesus is your child,
that we are your people,
the sheep that you pasture. Amen.
