Morning Prayer: 20 January – Romans 8:31-39 ~ inseparable love

Wednesday of the Second Week in Ordinary Time

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Opening Sentence

The Lord is king, let the earth rejoice. May I serve the Lord in holiness all my days.

Morning Reading:Mark 2:13-17(NLT)

What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No one — for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.


Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow — not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below — indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Morning Prayer

Nothing can separate me from the love of Christ, for he promised to be with me until the end of time. Stay with me today, Lord Jesus.

+ In all things I am victorious through your love – take me into your care today.
+ Let the love of your Holy Spirit be in my heart – I consecrate this day to you.
+ Help me to answer your call – may I be salt to the earth and light to the world.
+ As the day unfolds – may I work in harmony with your will for the good of all.

Stay with me today, Lord Jesus. Shed your clear light on my heart, Lord, so that walking continually in the light of your Word I may never be deceived or misled. Through my Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

“Nothing Can Separate Us” – Shannon Wexelberg


(May) Christ dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17-19)

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
