Opening(Northumbria Community)

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

Peanut Gallery: These are the words of wisdom that spoke to me today. How is God speaking to you through Proverbs 19?

Proverbs 19:3 (NLT) – People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the Lord.

Wise and True God: Overcome my infinite capacity for self-deception, that I may be able to distinguish between your words of wisdom and my own foolishness; and, in knowing the difference, follow your leading.

+ May I continually turn to your Word of truth to teach me, convict me, correct me that I may do what is right in your sight.

+ May I accept responsibility for my own foolishness, and shoulder the consequences with equanimity.

+ May I continually seek out godly advice and counsel that your plans may prevail in my life.

+ May I place loyalty, honesty and hard work above sketchy schemes for quick gain.

+ May I cheerfully help the poor and disadvantaged as unto the Lord.

+ May I control my anger by overlooking wrongs done to me.

Wise and True God: You discipline those you love. Forgive my foolishness and place within me a proper sense of reverence and fear that I may love and serve you freely and joyfully through Jesus Christ my Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

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!
