Morning Prayer: Thu, 15 Sep – Psalm 27:4; Daniel 2:20-23; Luke 6:38 ~ from out of the quiet place

+ 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 27:4 (NLT)

intimacy-ps-27-4

The one thing I ask of the Lord—the thing I seek most—is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple.

Reading: Daniel 2:20-23 (NLT)

Daniel said:

“Praise the name of God forever and ever, for he has all wisdom and power.

He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars. He reveals deep and mysterious things and knows what lies hidden in darkness, though he is surrounded by light.

I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors, for you have given me wisdom and strength. You have told me what we asked of you and revealed to us what the king demanded.”

Reading: Luke 6:38 (NLT)

“Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”

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.’

+ Praise to You, Lord God of heaven and earth. To You belong all wisdom and power; and from You I generously receive wisdom and strength.
+ Build into my life a daily habit of quietude in the security of Your presence, from which I can venture forth into this noisy, uncertain world to love and serve You.
+ Remind me constantly that You are in control of world events, regardless of how things looks from my limited perspective.
+ Raise up men and women who will champion the poor, free the enslaved, and also be the friends of rulers and those in authority; and show me my part in all of this.
+ Bless all who are entrusted with these responsibilities with true friends, and may they faithfully witness to Your power and love.
+ Give me the gift of faithfulness and generosity, and free me from my selfishness; may I give freely from the largess I have received from Your hand.

In Your mercy, Lord God, keep me free from sin, and 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.

“Selah on Psalm 27:4-6” – Instrumental

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!
