A Shelter to the Soul

video
CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
The Lord our God is kind and just—
compassionate is he;
for God preserves the meek, and from
the depths he rescued me.
 —Psalm 116:6-7
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
For the Lord your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if you return to him
—2 Chronicles 30:9b
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Prayer is a shelter to the soul; a sacrifice to God and a scourge to the devil. David's heart was oft more out of tune than his harp. He prays, and then, in spite of the devil, cries, Return unto thy rest, O my soul. Prayer is the gate of heaven, a key to let us into paradise. There is nothing that renders plots fruitless like prayer; therefore Christ says, Watch and pray that you enter not into temptation [Matt 26:41].
 —Thomas Brooks
TODAY'S PRAYER
When all we are and everything we do are called into question, grant us dignity and direction, grant us patience; Jesus, be with us then...

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
