Morning Prayer: Tue, 20 Sep – Psalm 65:9-10; Genesis 1:11; John 20:6-10 ~ overflowing with life

+ 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 65:9-10 (NLT)

You take care of the earth and water it, making it rich and fertile. The river of God has plenty of water; it provides a bountiful harvest of grain, for you have ordered it so. You drench the plowed ground with rain, melting the clods and leveling the ridges. You soften the earth with showers and bless its abundant crops.

Reading: Genesis 1:11 (NLT)

overflow3

Then God said, “Let the land sprout with vegetation—every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.” And that is what happened.

Reading: John 20:6-10 (NLT)

Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus’ head was folded up and lying apart from the other wrappings. Then the disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in, and he saw and believed—for until then they still hadn’t understood the Scriptures that said Jesus must rise from the dead. Then they went home.

Prayer

My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, O God.

Follow the example of good men and women of old, who came to Me as empty vessels to be filled with treasure hidden deep within them by My hand.

+ Freely I have received, so freely I will give my plans to You, from beginning to end – that I may truly live.
+ Freely I have received, so freely I will give friendship and hospitality to others – that all may enter into Your joy.
+ Freely I have received, so freely I will give grace and truth to others – that all may be guided by Your hand.
+ Freely I have received, so freely I will give hope and help to others – that all may be born again through Your life-giving Spirit.

Lord Jesus: You pour life into me, giving me speech, sense, desire, giving me thought and action. My fame or repute will be just as You allow: You mark the way before me. Help me to follow faithfully in Your footsteps until my life’s end. 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!
