Daily Come Follow Me API

Get daily verses from this week's Come Follow Me lesson

The Daily Come Follow Me API is a web service to obtain passages from the current week's Come Follow Me lesson, with all verses obtained from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints website.

The API will only return one set of verses per day, and is designed to return verses on Monday through Saturday. The API may also return any leftover verses on Sunday, but only if there are verses left usused during the rest of the week. Ocassionally verses may be repeated if they are re-emphasized in the lesson.

This API does also include a version that outputs the same verses in a parsed format to make it easier for simple applications or integration with Apple Shortcuts.
