Moses led the Israelites away from the Red Sea into the Desert of Shur. They traveled for three days in the desert but found no water. Then they came to Marah, where there was water, but they could not drink it because it was too bitter. (That is why the place was named Marah.)
— Exodus 15:22-23 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, when You led Israel from Egypt in the pillar of cloud, You led them right to a place without drinkable water: a place where they could die of thirst, a place that seemed hopeless and made them feel trapped and alone. Lord, I have tried to follow You, but I feel like I'm in that same place. I feel defeated and depressed, forsaken and alone, lost and hopeless. Thank You for reminding me that this is just the sort of place where You are likely to show Your power to deliver and save. You are the God of last-minute rescues — often in surprising ways. Please turn my life sweet again, just as you did for Israel in Marah. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
