Morning Prayer: Thu, 18 August – Proverbs 2:12-15; Romans 8:18-21 ~ in eager hope of glorious freedom

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

Opening Sentence

I arise today through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity, through a belief in the Threeness, through a confession of the Oneness of the Creator of creation.

Morning Reading: Proverbs 2:12-15 (NLT)

Wisdom will save you from evil people, from those whose words are twisted. These men turn from the right way to walk down dark paths. They take pleasure in doing wrong, and they enjoy the twisted ways of evil. Their actions are crooked, and their ways are wrong.

Morning Reading: Romans 8:18-21 (NLT)

Jesus is our freedom

Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay.

Prayer

Our Lord, Jesus Christ, greeted us with good news: may the world hear it through us, and find hope. Holy is your name.

+ We praise and thank you, Lord of heaven and earth; you are the hope and joy of mankind in every age.
+ Deliver us from evil people, with their twisted words and crooked ways; may we walk in the light as you are in the light.
+ We pray for Christians who suffer for their belief: sustain them in their hope and provide for them in their distress.

Holy is your name, Lord. Transform us by a true understanding of salvation, so that, freed from fear and from the power of our foes, we may serve you faithfully all the days of our life. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Blessing

Christ with me, Christ in me.

Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left; Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down; Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me; Christ in the eye that sees me, Christ in the ear that hears me.

Christ with me, Christ in me.

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