O Lord, Hear; O Lord, Forgive

A Community of Love   Daniel 9:15-25

Prayer for the Day:
“Now, our God, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant. For your sake, O Lord, look with favor on your desolate sanctuary. Give ear, O God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act! For your sake, O my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name.”
(Daniel 9:17-19; NIV)

Question for reflection:
What do you find yourself praying for that surprises you?

  1. Kobe has lived in LA longer than he lived in Philly. Even Bill Simmons would give him a pass for being a Dodger fan.I’m curious to see what Rondo does this year. If him and Bynum both start to realize their potentials this season, the C’s and the Lakers are in a stratosphere all by themselves.
