Morning Prayer: Thu, 20 Oct – Psalm 119:118-120; Nehemiah 8:9; James 3:3-8 ~ when trembling is a good thing
The fear of the Lord can help us… to be directed in the particular path that will best help us in our own journey with God. The paths may be as varied as the people! Specific obedience us what is required.
Help me to find my happiness in my acceptance of what is Your purpose for me: in friendly eyes, in work well done, in quietness born of trust, and, most of all, in the awareness of Your presence in my spirit.
God our Father, your sovereign rule is a rule of love, your providence is full of mercy for your people. Grant the spirit of wisdom to those you have placed in civil and spiritual authority over us, so that we may enter into your peace and live in harmony with one another. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Praise to you, Heavenly Father, for your Son, my Lord Jesus Christ. Through the Holy Spirit he offered himself in sacrifice to you, that I might be delivered from death and selfishness, and be free to live in your peace.
Lord God, true Light and Creator of light, grant that faithfully pondering on all that is holy, I may ever live in the splendour of your presence. Through my Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Stay with me, Lord Jesus: In all things I am victorious through your love; take me into your care today.
