And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare.

Reading: John 4:39-42 (NLT)

Many Samaritans from the village believed in Jesus because the woman had said, “He told me everything I ever did!” When they came out to see him, they begged him to stay in their village. So he stayed for two days, long enough for many more to hear his message and believe. Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe, not just because of what you told us, but because we have heard him ourselves. Now we know that he is indeed the Savior of the world.”

Prayer:

Father, we praise You for Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ; through the Holy Spirit He offered Himself in sacrifice to You, that we might be delivered from death and selfishness, and be free to live in Your peace.

+ We accept this new day as Your gift, Lord; grant that we may live in newness of life.
+ You made all things, and keep all things in being; give us the insight to see Your hand at work in them all.
+ Your Son sealed the new and everlasting covenant in His blood; help us to live by this covenant and honor it.
+ You poured out Your Spirit on Your people; fill us with Your Spirit today and grant us Your peace.

Almighty God, as in this morning prayer we offer You our praise, grant that in Your kingdom, together with all Your saints, we may praise You with even greater joy. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
