The night has passed and the day lies open before us;
let us pray with one heart and mind:
As we rejoice in the gift of this day,
so may the light of your presence, O God,
set our hearts on fire with love for you;
now and for ever.

Old Testament Reading - Moses’ Intercession


12Moses talked there with the Lord and said to him, “You have been telling me, ‘Take these people to the Promised Land,’ but you haven’t told me whom you will send with me. You say you are my friend,a and that I have found favor before you; 13please, if this is really so, guide me clearly along the way you want me to travelb so that I will understand you and walk acceptably before you. For don’t forget that this nation is your people.”

14And the Lord replied, “I myself will go with you and give you success.”

15For Moses had said, “If you aren’t going with us, don’t let us move a step from this place. 16If you don’t go with us, who will ever know that I and my people have found favor with you, and that we are different from any other people upon the face of the earth?”

17And the Lord had replied to Moses, “Yes, I will do what you have asked, for you have certainly found favor with me, and you are my friend.”c
