Morning Prayer: Tue, 18 Oct – Psalm 119:105-112; Isaiah 30:20-21; Hebrews 4:12-13 ~ naked accountability
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.
Heavenly Father: Draw me close to You, that I might listen and learn. Give me a teachable spirit and write Your Word on my heart, that I might not lose my way. In Jesus’ name.

Lord, tireless guardian of your people, always ready to hear the cries of your chosen ones, teach us to rely, day and night, on your care. Support our prayer lest we grow weary. Impel us to seek your enduring justice and your ever-present help. Grant 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: Fri, 14 Oct – Psalm 119:81-88; Judges 6:11-14; Hebrews 12:11-12 ~ get a grip and straighten up
Merciful God: I ask for Your healing presence in my life and in the lives of all who are feeling tired and weak. We lay our lives down at Your throne and praise You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
It is your business and others’ to go forth, confronting them face to face, for that is the only way of bringing them to Me. For when you are face to face with them, you love them, and once you love them, then I can speak through you.
