I choose no other Lord than the Maker of heaven and earth.
This day I walk with Him and He will walk with me.
Reading: Psalm 10:12 (NLT)

In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.
Prayer: – St Patrick (389-461) – resolute discipleship
This day I walk with Christ and He will walk with me.
+ I fasten close to me this day that same power who came to us as flesh and blood and was Himself baptized in the Jordan river.
+ He died upon the cross to rescue me, broke free from death, its conqueror. He left us, to return the more certainly.
Resisting my own selfishness and sin, refusing to live as a slave to riches, pleasure or reputation, rejecting Satan and all his lies, I call on heaven to witness today that I have put on Christ.
“Strength” – Jonathan & Melissa Helser
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 Protecting Father, in the name of the Conquering Son, and in the name of the Liberating Spirit. Amen!
