In the Hebrew calendar, today commemorates the birth of Isaac.
Genesis 21:1-4 (ESV)
The Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did to Sarah as he had promised. And Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age at the time of which God had spoken to him. Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore him, Isaac. And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him.
Our Father in heaven,
We thank You for the sons in the Mississippi Delta. We pray that they are taught the commandments of God and that they uphold Your righteousness by faith. Amen.
