August 7 – Pentecost IX (Proper 14) – Surprise pregnancy and terminal

diagnosis can inflict real anxiety about material necessities. But abortion and

assisted suicide will only leave its victims lacking even more. Our Heavenly

Father, on the other hand, gets giddy to furnish sufferers with not just what we

need but all the assets, land, and families He has (Luke 12:31-32). Death, even

when we wield it, leaves us empty, but faith never fails to fill hands and hearts.

: Psalm 125 – Praying for Mercy There is a persistence in our prayers to God. The psalmist proclaims that we continue lifting up our eyes to Him as a servant to their master “until He has mercy on us.” We pray, and pray, and pray, until we receive the mercy of God. Sometimes this comes quickly. Sometimes it takes a while. Sometimes, as with the prayer: “Let your servant depart in peace” we must wait till the Lord calls us from this veil of sorrows to Himself in glory . But the promise of God is that He will always have mercy upon us, we overflow with it. We know this because we’ve seen in with the sending of His Son, and we’ve received it in the hearing of the Word, and the blessings of the Absolution, Baptism, and Altar. Lord, thank You for giving me Your mercy without

end. Amen.
