But if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not set out till the day that it was taken up. For the cloud of the Lord was on the tabernacle by day, and fire was in it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel throughout all their journeys. (Exodus 40:37-38 ESV)
если же не поднималось облако, то и они не отправлялись в путь, доколе оно не поднималось, ибо облако Господне стояло над скиниею днем, и огонь был ночью в ней пред глазами всего дома Израилева во все путешествие их. (Исход 40:37-38 Russian)
Almighty God, our dear Heavenly Father ~ hear the prayers of all those who cry out to you with hearts full and of faith and love for your beloved Son. Help us Lord, if we even momentarily take our eyes off of Christ the Light of our lives. Shine upon the Church today so that every faithful Christian will live with renewed fervor to be good and faithful servants of the true Light that can bring hope to the darkest corners of this world when people look to you with sincere faith. Forgive our foolish ways when we may have doubted the power of the Gospel to turn the world from darkness to light. In the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
