A Kind of Unity

CALL TO PRAYER
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
—Matthew 5:5
PSALM
Our Sovereign God hears all the prayers
that from the needy rise;
the prayers of those held prisoner
God never will despise.
—Psalm 69:33
Suggested tune (Burlington):
TEXT OF THE DAY
Speak out, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.
—Proverbs 31:9
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Since the Lord has bound the whole human race by a kind of unity, the safety of all ought to be considered as entrusted to each.
—John Calvin
MORNING PRAYER
Uphold, O God, all those who are persecuted or imprisoned for their beliefs. Be to them a light showing the way ahead; a rock giving them strength to stand; a song singing of all things overcome. Amen.
—Richard Harries
