Reflection & Prayer

Proverbs 21:2 (NLT)People may be right in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their heart.

Lord God, I offer you my heart today, promptly and sincerely. Examine my motives –

+ that I may do what is right and just
+ that I may receive instruction and grow in wisdom
+ that I may live humbly and honestly before you
+ that I may live truthfully, without guile or deceit
+ that I may live simply and frugally, and give generously
+ that I may work hard with the end in mind
+ that I may control my tongue and think before I speak or act
+ that I may extend mercy and forgiveness to those around me
+ that I may extend kindness and generosity to those in need
+ that I may pursue righteousness and unfailing love
+ that I may trust you with all my heart, and place my future in your hands

Righteous God, take my heart today that I may love and serve you as a faithful witness to your Son, Jesus Christ, 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!
