Daily D – Psalm 60:2
You have shaken our land and split it open. Seal the cracks, for the land trembles. PSALM 60:2 (NLT)
Today I will fly for the first time since the pandemic hit. I have three facemasks just in case. My wife and daughter have made sure I know to abide by all the rules. I have hand sanitizer, wet wipes, and enough instructions to keep me busy cleaning the whole flight.
Once I arrive in Washington D. C., our son and I begin the trek across the country back here to our home. Next week we will continue the journey on to California. This coast-to-coast journey will show us how everyday life is affected by the constraints of these days.
Today’s verse is a good prayer for our day. “Seal the cracks, for the land trembles.” Indeed, the whole world staggers from the weight of this virus. Systems we depend on are cracked. Some are at the breaking point.
King David knew where to turn when everything he depended upon was falling apart. Let us do the same thing he did. Let us go to God who alone can heal our land and help our world.
I will pray across the USA.
Our Father, our land and our world are shaken. So many structures are broken. Seal the cracks. Heal our land. Heal our world. May your peace cover the earth as waters cover the seas and as the sky wraps itself around this planet. May all people everywhere see you for who you are and know you as you want to be known. Amen.

1 Chron. 27:32-34 Jonathan, David’s uncle, was a wise counselor to the king, a man of great insight, and a scribe. Jehiel the Hacmonite was responsible for teaching the king’s sons.

1 Chron. 22:5 David said, “My son Solomon is still young and inexperienced. And since the Temple to be built for the LORD must be a magnificent structure, famous and glorious throughout the world, I will begin making preparations for it now.” So David collected vast amounts of building materials before his death.
