Biblical illiteracy

Jeremiah 8:7 (NLT)
Even the stork that flies across the sky
knows the time of her migration,
as do the turtledove, the swallow, and the crane.
They all return at the proper time each year.
But not my people!
They do not know the Lord’s laws.

O Father,
We have failed to teach our children Your holy laws. We have not instilled daily disciplines of Bible reading in ourselves and our descendants.
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Stir the people of the Mississippi Delta to turn to Holy Scripture, to pick up and read, to mark and inwardly digest, to speak Your Holy Word out loud, to teach, to preach, to sing. Amen.
