Morning Prayer: Sat, 08 Oct – Psalm 119:41-48; Genesis 41:14-16; Matthew 10:18-20 ~ the right words at the right time

+ 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 119:41-48 (NLT)

Lord, give me your unfailing love, the salvation that you promised me. Then I can answer those who taunt me, for I trust in your word.  Do not snatch your word of truth from me, for your regulations are my only hope.

I will keep on obeying your instructions forever and ever. I will walk in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments. I will speak to kings about your laws, and I will not be ashamed.

How I delight in your commands! How I love them! I honor and love your commands. I meditate on your decrees.

Reading: Genesis 41:14-16 (NLT)

truth-and-power

Pharaoh sent for Joseph at once, and he was quickly brought from the prison. After he shaved and changed his clothes, he went in and stood before Pharaoh. Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I had a dream last night, and no one here can tell me what it means. But I have heard that when you hear about a dream you can interpret it.”

“It is beyond my power to do this,” Joseph replied. “But God can tell you what it means and set you at ease.”

Reading: Matthew 10:18-20 (NLT)

You will stand trial before governors and kings because you are my followers. But this will be your opportunity to tell the rulers and other unbelievers about me. When you are arrested, don’t worry about how to respond or what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time. For it is not you who will be speaking—it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

Prayer

By seeking out Your precepts I will walk at liberty! I will speak of You before kings and rulers, standing unashamed.

In the true faith may I remain; in Jesus may I find hope; against exploitation of the poor may I help; against my faults may I fight, my bad habits abandon; the name of my neighbor may I defend; in the work of mercy may I advance; those in misery may I help; every danger of sin may I avoid; in holy Charity may I grow strong; in the well of grace in confession may I wash; may I deserve the help of my brothers and sisters in Christ and their friendship win.

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

“I Am Not Alone” – Kari Jobe

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!

  1. Even the great Saint Paul had fears in witnessing to the Corinthians! Something I learned from the Lord while street witnessing.
    1Cor. 2:3 I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling.
