Morning Reading: 2 Thessalonians 3:10-13 (NLT)

on work

Even while we were with you, we gave you this command: “Those unwilling to work will not get to eat.”

Yet we hear that some of you are living idle lives, refusing to work and meddling in other people’s business. We command such people and urge them in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and work to earn their own living. As for the rest of you, dear brothers and sisters, never get tired of doing good.

Morning Prayer

As the new day begins, praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ, in whom is the fullness of grace and the Spirit of God. Lord, give me your Spirit.

+ Praise you, Lord, I thank you for all your blessings.

  • Give me peace of mind and generosity of heart.
  • Grant me health and strength to do your will.

+ May your love be with me during the day; guide me in my work.
+ Be with all those who have asked for my prayers, and grant them all their needs.

Lord, be the beginning and end of all that I do and say. Prompt my actions with your grace, and complete them with your all-powerful help. Through my Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
