Col 4 1-4

Masters, treat your bondservants[a] justly and fairly, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven

2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 3 At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— 4 that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.

Psalm 69 1-8

Save me, O God!

    For the waters have come up to my neck.[a]

I sink in deep mire,

    where there is no foothold;

I have come into deep waters,

    and the flood sweeps over me.

I am weary with my crying out;

    my throat is parched.

My eyes grow dim

    with waiting for my God.

More in number than the hairs of my head

    are those who hate me without cause;

mighty are those who would destroy me,

    those who attack me with lies.

What I did not steal

    must I now restore?

O God, you know my folly;

    the wrongs I have done are not hidden from you.

Let not those who hope in you be put to shame through me,

    O Lord God of hosts;

let not those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me,

    O God of Israel.

For it is for your sake that I have borne reproach,

    that dishonor has covered my face.

I have become a stranger to my brothers,    an alien to my mother’s sons.
