April 25th – Tuesday

Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. – 1 Peter 4:9

On this day in 1990, the crew of the U.S. Space Shuttle Discovery placed the Hubble Space Telescope into orbit around Earth. Originally conceived in the 1940s, the long-term space-based observatory took decades to design and build. It was created to give astronomers a unique and better-quality view of outer space. After its initial launch into orbit, Hubble suffered a brief setback when it experienced a problem with its lens. However, a repair mission launched in December 1993 was successful and allowed the telescope to begin sending amazing images of the universe back to Earth. Hubble’s technology has also assisted in the development of better methods for detecting breast cancer. Thank God today that technology created for the exploration of space may be a benefit to other industries.

As the Lord leads, pray with us…

  • For Administrator Bill Nelson to seek God’s guidance as he heads the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
  • For Secretary Xavier Becerra to have wisdom as he oversees the implementation of technology in the Department of Health and Human Services.
