Morning Prayer: Sat, 17 Dec – Psalm 72:1-4, 7-8, 17; Genesis 49:2, 8-10; Matthew 1:1-17 ~ from Abraham through David to Jesus

Give your love of justice to the king, O God, and righteousness to the king’s son. Help him judge your people in the right way; let the poor always be treated fairly. May the mountains yield prosperity for all, and may the hills be fruitful. Help him to defend the poor, to rescue the children of the needy, and to crush their oppressors.
