Bonus Reading, Psalms

Restoring God's People  

Today's reading is a song which pleads for the restoration (again) of God's people to a place of blessing and honor.  It recognizes that God has forgiven the people for their past sins and restored them before; it asks that God do so again.  It asks that God put away anger and extend salvation and restoration to God's faithful people.  (In so many ways, Jesus is the answer to this prayer, especially in those things that we remember on this Maundy Thursday -- washing the feet of the disciples, sharing the Lord's Supper with them, and beginning the final journey to Calvary.)

Read Psalm 85  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
