Read Psalm 80:1-7
The Psalm begins by asking God to listen, while acknowledging God as the shepherd who is mighty and enthroned above. Where in your life are you asking God to listen to you? Is there something you are crying out for God to do? Take the next moments to lay your cares before God, our good and faithful shepherd. Know that God hears you, God inclines an ear to your prayers. We can be assured of this because Jesus, our Emmanuel, demonstrated that God is indeed with us.
Close your time by listening to your favorite version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel
