Lord Jesus, when You walked the earth, Your humility obscured Your Kingship. Let my heart always imitate Your humility!
God replied to Moses, “I am who I am. Say this to the people of Israel: I am has sent me to you.”
Help me to know that the secret of contentment lies in organizing the self in the direction of simplicity. And, unless You have another task for me, keep me vigilant in prayer.
Lord, show me the right seat, find me the fitting task, give me the willing heart… when duty calls.
Lord, show me the right seat; find me the fitting task; give me the willing heart.
26th Ordinary Sunday, 25 September: Amos 6:1a, 4-7; Psalm 146:7-10; 1 Timothy 6:11-16; Luke 16:19-31 ~ pursue righteousness
O God of justice, hear our cry and save us. Make us heed your word to the prophets; rouse us to the demand of the gospel and impel us to carry it out.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.
Morning Prayer: Sat, 24 Sep – Psalm 8:9; Ecclesiastes 3:11-13; Matthew 20:25-28 ~ beautiful servants
God, our God, Your design for us is perfect in its friendliness. There is a purpose in all things; and whoso finds it wins strength to bear. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life for many.
On Your path, O my God, and not my own, be all my journeying. Rule this heart of mine that it be only Yours.
