Egypt: On the run

Matthew 2:13-15

Question for Reflection:
Sometimes God’s call doesn’t come at an easy time. Sometimes it’s in the dead of night. But we must answer and go. When have you heard God’s call and followed without hesitation? What was the outcome?

Prayer for the day:
God, a bit of a notice is helpful, but we know that when you call at what seems like an inconvenient time for us, it is the exact time that we need to hear that call. Thank you for sticking with us even when we refuse to jump right away and helping us through the hard times when we do answer immediately. In your name we pray. Amen.
