The editor sent me the material for each day, what would appear in the book, and I wrote a prayer for each day. I particularly like the prayer I wrote for this day's reading.
Here's what I was sent:
The festival of unleavened bread
Moses said to the people, “Remember this day on which you came out of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, because the LORD brought you out from there by strength of hand; no leavened bread shall be eaten. Today, in the month of Abib, you are going out. When the LORD brings you into the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he swore to your ancestors to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, you shall keep this observance in this month. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there shall be a festival to the LORD.” (Exodus 13:3-6)
Bread as a sign of other things
Manna rains down
Hymn: Bless Now, O God, the Journey, ELW 326
Here is the prayer I wrote:
Oh God, you brought your people out of Egypt and rescued them from slavery. Throughout history, you have liberated the oppressed by the strength of your hand. Remind us of our enslavements and unlock our shackles, so that we, too, may dine on milk and honey.
