Morning Prayer: Fri, 19 August – Proverbs 3:5-6; Galatians 2:19-20 ~ Christ lives in me

+ 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 3:5-6 (NLT)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

Morning Reading: Galatians 2:19-20 (NLT)

christ in me

For when I tried to keep the law, it condemned me. So I died to the law—I stopped trying to meet all its requirements—so that I might live for God. My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Prayer

Christ is the image of the unseen God, the first-born of all creation, and the first to be born from the dead. All things are to be reconciled through him because he made peace by his death on the cross.

+ Lord Jesus, we have been baptized into your death: cleanse us of greed and envy, and clothe us in the strength and gentleness of your love.
+ Lord Jesus, we have been sealed with the Holy Spirit who has been given to us: confirm us in your service, and help us to bear witness to you in the society in which we live.
+ Lord Jesus, you continue to work in your faithful people: create through us a new world where injustice and destruction will give way to growth, freedom and hope.
+ Lord Jesus, come to us today: bestow a full measure of your grace on us as we come to you in prayer.

Lord God, as you work within us to keep us in the path of righteousness, console us in this present life and grant us eternal joys in the next. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

“Trust In Jesus” – Third Day

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!
