Daily Briefing

Daily Brief: Wednesday, June 24th

Wednesday will bring a high of 96 degrees, low humidity, and sunny skies.

Today we remember The Nativity of Saint John the Baptist.

The prophet and forerunner of Jesus was his cousin, John, the only child of Elizabeth and Zechariah. He preached repentance and called upon people to prepare for the coming of the Messiah. He baptized his followers to signify their repentance and new life. Hence he was called John the Baptist. Jesus himself was baptized by John in the River Jordan. May we announce the Messiah with boldness, that the world might know the saving power of Jesus Christ. Amen.

A prayer for today: Almighty God, by whose providence your servant John the Baptist was wonderfully born, and sent to prepare the way of your Son our Savior by preaching repentance: Make us so to follow his teaching and holy life, that we may truly repent according to his preaching; and, following his example, constantly speak the truth, boldly rebuke vice, and patiently suffer for the truth’s sake; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
