1) Preparation and Prayer

Good morning! Please read this Psalm as a prayer over you and your loved ones.

For He delivers the needy when he calls, the poor and him who has no helper.
He has pity on the weak and the needy, and saves the lives of the needy.
From oppression and violence He redeems their life, and precious is their blood in his sight.


Psalm 72:12–14 (ESV)
