Morning Prayer: Fri, 09 Sep – Psalm 34:1; Proverbs 8:14-17; Matthew 25:21 ~ “well done”

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

Opening Sentence

One thing I have asked of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life; to behold the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.

Reading: Psalm 34:1 (NLT)

I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises.

Reading: Proverbs 8:14-17 (NLT)

Common sense and success belong to me. Insight and strength are mine. Because of me, kings reign, and rulers make just decrees. Rulers lead with my help, and nobles make righteous judgments.

“I love all who love me. Those who search will surely find me.”

Well done, my good & faithful servant

Well done, my good & faithful servant

Reading: Matthew 25:21 (NLT)

“The master was full of praise. ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’”

Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, You are the good steward, who redeemed Adam and Eve of their failed stewardship by offering Yourself for the life of the world.

+ You teach me in the feeding of the multitudes that whatever I give to God is returned to me multiplied.
+ You praise those good and faithful servants in the parable of the talents who returned to the Master their gifts.

Help me to enter into the joy of stewardship, remembering that everything I have comes from You and belongs to You.

+ I know, Lord, that I often live in fear of the future and insecurity.
+ Help me to remember the lilies of the field and so to trust in Your providence.
+ Grant to me a cheerful and generous spirit and kindle in my heart zealous love for You.

For You are the Good Steward, and to You I give thanks, praise and glory, together with Your Father who is from everlasting and Your all holy good and life-giving Spirit now and ever and onto the ages of ages. Amen

“Well Done” – Deitrick Haddon

Just wanna make it to heaven | I just wanna make it in
I just wanna cross that river | I wanna be free from sin
I just want my name written | Written in the Lamb’s Book of Life
When this life is over | I just wanna have eternal life

I want to hear You say: “Well done, well done, well done | You can come on in.”

Anybody wanna see your loved ones | That you’ve lost along the way
I just wanna walk those streets of gold | They say the half has never, never been told
I don’t want my singing Lord | I don’t want it, to be in vain
I just wanna cross that river of God | That’s why I’m living, day to day, just to hear you say:

“Well done, well done, well done | You can come on in.”

Blessing

May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

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