My view of life from the cheap seats… Art Chartier

Morning Prayer: Wed, 28 Sep – Psalm 131:1-2; I Kings 19:19-21; Mark 14:32-40 ~ answering the call

Help me to know that the secret of contentment lies in organizing the self in the direction of simplicity. And, unless You have another task for me, keep me vigilant in prayer.

26th Ordinary Sunday, 25 September: Amos 6:1a, 4-7; Psalm 146:7-10; 1 Timothy 6:11-16; Luke 16:19-31 ~ pursue righteousness

O God of justice, hear our cry and save us. Make us heed your word to the prophets; rouse us to the demand of the gospel and impel us to carry it out.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.

God, our God, Your design for us is perfect in its friendliness. There is a purpose in all things; and whoso finds it wins strength to bear. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life for many.
