Turn Scripture into a Prayer: Leviticus 23
Dear God, I read in Leviticus where you spoke to Moses and appointed a number of feasts to be observed as sacred assemblies and celebrations. I can see that the feasts you proclaimed were to be joyous occasions celebrating past acts of God while giving hope for the future. I too want to celebrate Your work in my life and the hope I have for the future. Thank You for the gift of salvation and for salvation history that weaves its way throughout the pages of the Old Testament into the New Testament in the life of Jesus and His followers. I count it a high privilege to be among His followers and celebrate daily His work in my life. Amen.1
