May 14: Psalm 134; 2Kings 14-16

Song for Today: 
I Am Thine O Lord
Cry Out to Jesus

Behold, bless the Lord, all servants of the Lord,
Who serve by night in the house of the Lord!
Lift up your hands to the sanctuary
And bless the Lord.
May the Lord bless you from Zion,
He who made heaven and earth.
