Today is really day 61, but I’m still a day behind so I’m in the middle of Thursday’s reading.
This passage struck me. Daniel is praying to God about the promise that the remnent of Israel would be returned to Jerusalem after 70 years. And he prays:
My God, turn your ear, and hear; open your eyes and see how desolated we are, as well as the city which bears your name. For we plead with you not because of our own righteousness, but because of your compassion. Daniel 9:18
