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.

Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ, King of endless glory.

Reflection & Prayer

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” – Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NLT)

Proverbs 16:3 (NLT)“Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.”

Sovereign Lord: You rule over heaven and earth; you see everything, and know everything. Even before I was born, you knew me and laid out a good plan for my life – a plan with a hope-filled future. You made me in your likeness for your own good purpose.

Lord, as the remainder of my life unfolds, guide me along your path for my success –

+ Examine my motives and grant me purity of heart
+ Rid me of my pride that I may have a humble, contrite heart
+ Cover my sin with your unfailing love and faithfulness
+ Fill me with proper respect that I may honor you in all I do
+ Keep me close to you that I may not run ahead, or lag behind
+ Provide me with wise counselors to help me avoid pitfalls along the way

Lord, my life is in your hands. Thank you for your loving-kindness to me over the years. Fill me with the joy of your Spirit, and continue to train me in godliness through Jesus Christ my Lord, who lives in unity with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

“My Life is in You Lord” – by Joseph Garlington


Blessing – (Northumbrian Community)

May the peace of the Lord 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!
