Many people find comfort and edification through daily reading of the Bible. But it's a big book! Where do you start?

One practice that can be helpful is to read selections that coordinate with the texts we hear in church on Sunday. A daily lectionary for this purpose is set out in Evangelical Lutheran Worship. If you have a hymn book at home you can consult those tables for your daily readings, knowing that we are currently in liturgical Year B, the Year of Mark. Or you can simply read below for the selections for September and October, 2021.

These readings complement the Sunday and festival readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare you for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help you reflect on and digest what you heard in worship.

There is also a link below to a simple form for Daily Prayer. You can use this as a guide to your prayer and scripture reading each day.

I hope this will be a valuable resource to you as you nurture your own spiritual life, listening for God’s voice through the Word.
