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.

Morning Reading: Psalm 62 (NLT)

I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken.

So many enemies against one man—all of them trying to kill me. To them I’m just a broken-down wall or a tottering fence. They plan to topple me from my high position. They delight in telling lies about me. They praise me to my face but curse me in their hearts. Interlude

Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge. Interlude

Common people are as worthless as a puff of wind, and the powerful are not what they appear to be. If you weigh them on the scales, together they are lighter than a breath of air.

Don’t make your living by extortion or put your hope in stealing. And if your wealth increases, don’t make it the center of your life.

God has spoken plainly, and I have heard it many times: Power, O God, belongs to you; unfailing love, O Lord, is yours. Surely you repay all people according to what they have done.

Morning Prayer

O Lord our God: You alone are the Rock of our Salvation; we palce our trust in you alone –

+ Forgive us for trusting in other people…
+ Forgive us for trusting in our national leaders…
+ Forgive us for trusting in worldly wisdom…
+ Forgive us for trusting in our wealth…

O Lord our God: You alone are trustworthy and faithful in every circumstance –

+ You alone inspire confidence and hope…
+ You alone watch over us in times of prosperity and adversity…
+ You alone understand the workings of our hearts…
+ You alone hear our prayers and respond with mercy and loving-kindness…

O Lord our God: We take comfort and rejoice in your goodness in times of abundance and plenty; make us just as steadfast in joy during times of want, deprivation, and disaster. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
