Scripture Passage

Imagining the position that Joseph was in, how do you think he was able to remain open to the Lord’s voice? What are the characteristics used to define Joseph as a man of God? How does this testimony of honor and obedience challenge you?

The Prayer for the Week

Almighty God, give all of us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
