O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies, hear my prayer. Listen, O God of Jacob.
O God, look with favor upon the king, our shield! Show favor to the one you have anointed.
A single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God than live the good life in the homes of the wicked. For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.
Reading: I Chronicles 16:27-29 (NLT)

May everything in this my being be directed to Thy glory and may I never despair. For I am under Thy hand, and in Thee is all power and goodness. – Dag Hammarskjold, Markings
May I be equal to Your hope of me. If I am weak, I ask that You send only what I can bear. If I am strong, may I shrink from no testing that shall yield increase of strength or win security for my spirit.
I trust in You, O Lord. I say, “You are my God. My times are in Your hand, my times are in Your hand.”
“Psalm 84 ” – C3 Church Oxford Falls Campus in Sydney, Australia.
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.
