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.

Acts 21:10, 11 Several days later a man named Agabus, who also had the gift of prophecy, arrived from Judea. He came over, took Paul’s belt, and bound his own feet and hands with it. Then he said, “The Holy Spirit declares, ‘So shall the owner of this belt be bound by the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem and turned over to the Gentiles.’” (NLT)
Acts 20:33-35 “I have never coveted anyone’s silver or gold or fine clothes. You know that these hands of mine have worked to supply my own needs and even the needs of those who were with me. And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” (NLT)
Acts 18:9, 10 One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent! For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you, for many people in this city belong to me.” (NLT)
1 Kings 19:11-13 “Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the LORD told him. And as Elijah stood there, the LORD passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And a voice said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” (NLT)
