May 4


Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot
save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear.

In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul. § While I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering.

Do not hide Your face from me; do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; do not leave me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation. § But You, O Lord, do not be far from Me; O My Strength, hasten to help Me!

Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. § [He] delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us. § Shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily.

Isa. 59:1; Ps. 138:3; Dan. 9:21; Ps. 27:9; 22:19; Jer. 32:17; 2 Cor. 1:10; Luke 18:7–8


I have glorified You on the earth.

My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. § I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.

“Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” But they did not understand the statement which He spoke to them. § This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it… Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?

Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. § You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased. § All bore witness to Him, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth.

You are worthy… for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth.
