We are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness.

And so, dear friends, while you are waiting for these things to happen, make every effort to be found living peaceful lives that are pure and blameless in his sight.

And remember, our Lord’s patience gives people time to be saved.

Morning Prayer

God’s gift was not a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power and love, and self-control. Gracious God, send us your Spirit.

+ Father, send us your Spirit – that Christ may be born again today in the hearts of all mankind.
+ Father, send us your Spirit – that we may receive every spiritual blessing and thus reflect his presence.
+ Father, send us your Spirit – that we may open the eyes of the blind, proclaim the Word of light, and reap together the harvest of life.
+ Father, send us your Spirit – that the advancement of your kingdom may not fall short through our selfishness or fear.
+ Father, send us your Spirit – that the universe may be alive with the Spirit, and that our homes may be the pledge of a world redeemed.

Lord God, you are the source of our strength. Send us your Spirit that we may live courageously in Christ and persevere in faith to the end of our days. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

“Take my life and let it be”

Blessing

Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. (Hebrews 13:20-21)

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