Bonus Reading, Psalms

Prayer of Penitence   

Today's reading is a beautiful prayer that recognizes the sins that people make, which God may punish.  However, it asks that God teach people to treasure the days of their fleeting lives, trusting in God's protection and seeking God's wisdom.  And it asks for God's indulgence, offering as many days of joy as of judgment.

Read Psalm 90  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
