Opening Sentence

As I arise today, may the strength of God pilot me, the power of God uphold me, the wisdom of God guide me.

Morning Reading: Proverbs 10:20-21 (NLT)

The words of the godly are like sterling silver; the heart of a fool is worthless.

The words of the godly encourage many, but fools are destroyed by their lack of common sense.

Morning Reading: Romans 14:17-19 (NLT)

For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God, and others will approve of you, too. So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up.

Prayer

Blessed be our God and Father: he hears my prayers.

+ Thank you, Father, for sending your Son: may I keep him before my eyes throughout this day.
+ Make wisdom and sound judgement my guide: help me walk in newness of life.
+ Give me your strength in my weakness: when I meet problems give me courage to face them.
+ Direct my thoughts, my words, my actions today: may I know, and do, your will.
+ Fill me with your Spirit: may my life reflect your goodness and peace and joy.

Lord God, true Light and Creator of light, grant that faithfully pondering on all that is holy, I may ever live in the splendor of your presence. Through my Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

“Righteousness, Peace, Joy” – Ron Kenoly

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!
