Morning Prayer

“With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished. When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the Lord was merciful to them. As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, “Flee for your lives! Don't look back, and don't stop anywhere in the plain . .”

[Genesis 19:15-16; 26]

Father God,

Today, in an effort to escape sin, I may be tempted to look back over my shoulder. I do not want to repeat anything, so strengthen me so that I will keep my eyes on what lies ahead, and not on what is behind me.

Amen
