God, you are worthy of praise for your creativity, your mind, your actions, your words. You are goodness and justice and mercy. You are might and power. You are tender and kind. How could I ever want a better judge to stand before at the end of my life? I worship you.
Father, sometimes I lock people into one action they have done and assume they will always be like that. Help me see the whole person in everyone at all times. Please forgive me when I judge wrong and help me overcome it.
Thank you, Lord God, for hope. Hope lives, even when faith is tired and beaten down. All things can become better in you either directly or indirectly. No matter what happens, there is always hope because there is always God. Thank you for leaning low when my faith is low and rocking me gently in your arms of hope. Thank you for being patient with me and lending me your strength until full faith returns.
LUKE: SLAVE AND PHYSICIAN. Yes, in Roman times, physicians were family slaves. And slaves came from the losing side in war. Luke could have been enslaved after the great Battle of Baduhenna Wood in today’s Holland as Lukvert. In this novelized version of his life, he believes in the Nordic gods. But he cannot find them. When enslaved by the Romans, he learned of innumerable other gods. His prayer was always, “Oh thousand gods”. He even climbed Mt. Olympus, but Jupiter was not there. Now he was ready to meet Paul.
