Only Love Shall Enter

Call to Prayer
 Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
O'er you his angels he commands,
to bear you safely in their hands;
to keep you in God's paths alone,
nor dash your foot against a stone.
 —Psalm 91:11-12 (Tune: Woodworth LM)
Scripture of the Day
Faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love. 
—1 Corinthians 13:13
Food for Thought
Faith is the staff we walk with in this life. But we shall leave this staff at heaven's door, and only love shall enter. Thus, love carries away the crown from all the other graces. Love is the most long-lived grace; it is a blossom of eternity.
 —Thomas Manton, All Things for Good
Today's Prayer
Almighty God, you have taught me in your word that love fulfills your law. Grant that I may love you with all my heart and my neighbors as myself; through Jesus Christ...

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
