“Precious in the sight of the Lord”

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

Reading: 2 Kings 13:14, 20-21 (NLT)

When Elisha was in his last illness, King Jehoash of Israel visited him and wept over him. “My father! My father! I see the chariots and charioteers of Israel!” he cried.

Then Elisha died and was buried.

Groups of Moabite raiders used to invade the land each spring. Once when some Israelites were burying a man, they spied a band of these raiders. So they hastily threw the corpse into the tomb of Elisha and fled. But as soon as the body touched Elisha’s bones, the dead man revived and jumped to his feet!

Reading: Acts 6:15 (NLT)

At this point everyone in the high council stared at Stephen, because his face became as bright as an angel’s.

Prayer

God be with me in this Your day, every day and every way, with me and for me in this Your day; and the love and affection of heaven be toward me.

+ All that I am, and all that I do – Lord, I place into Your hands.

+ Everything I work for, and everything I hope for – Lord, I place into Your hands.

+ The troubles that weary me, and the thoughts that disturb me – Lord, I place into Your hands.

+ Each one that I pray for, and each one that I care for – Lord, I place into Your hands.

+ In my waking and my rising, and in my living and my dying – Lord, I place myself into Your hands.

Help me to find my happiness in my acceptance of what Your purpose is for me: in friendly eyes, in work well done, and, most of all, in the awareness of Your presence in my spirit. Through my Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

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!
