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 113:3 (NLT)

Everywhere—from east to west—praise the name of the Lord.

Reading: 2 Kings 2:11-14 (NLT)

As they were walking along and talking, suddenly a chariot of fire appeared, drawn by horses of fire. It drove between the two men, separating them, and Elijah was carried by a whirlwind into heaven. Elisha saw it and cried out, “My father! My father! I see the chariots and charioteers of Israel!” And as they disappeared from sight, Elisha tore his clothes in distress.

Elisha picked up Elijah’s cloak, which had fallen when he was taken up. Then Elisha returned to the bank of the Jordan River. He struck the water with Elijah’s cloak and cried out, “Where is the Lord, the God of Elijah?” Then the river divided, and Elisha went across.

Reading: 2 Timothy 4:7-8 (NLT)

2-tim-4-7

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.

Prayer

Then I heard a voice in heaven saying, ‘Whom shall I send? and who will go for us? Then said I, ‘Here I am; send me.’

+ Lord, see what evil the prince of this world is devising. Let the wind of Your Spirit blow and reverse the works of darkness: and Your fire will cover the earth.
+ Deliver me, Lord from every evil and grant me Your peace. In Your mercy, Lord, keep me free from sin.
+ I pray the protection of Christ to clothe me, Christ to enfold me, to surround me and guard me this day and every day.

Protect me from all anxiety as I wait in joyful hope for the coming of my Savior, Jesus Christ. Let Your Kingdom come, Lord, in me. Amen.

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