And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word. (1 Kings 18:21)
LORD, I pray for your people who falter between the two opinions and remain silent when they should speak.
A word received: Choose this day whom you will serve.
