Opening Sentence

Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship,
for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord.

Reading: Psalm 37:7-11 (NLT)

Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.

Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper—it only leads to harm. For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.

meditation-be-still

Soon the wicked will disappear. Though you look for them, they will be gone. The lowly will possess the land and will live in peace and prosperity.
__________

Reading: Micah 6:8 (NLT)

No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
__________

Reading: Romans 13:11-12 (NLT)

This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armor of right living.

Prayer:

Almighty King:  You are my Savior and my God.

+ Help me to keep Your commandments; so that through Your Holy Spirit I may dwell in You, and You in me.
+ Everlasting Wisdom, come to me: dwell with me and work in me today.
+ Help me to be considerate and kind; grant that I may bring joy, not pain, to those I meet.
+ Quiet my soul in Your presence throughout the day; deliver me from the wiles of the evil one.

Look with favor on me this morning, Lord, and in Your saving love let Your light penetrate the hidden places of my heart. May no sordid desires darken my mind, renewed and enlightened as I am by Your heavenly grace. Through my Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
