Besides Me There Is No Savior

CALL TO PRAYER
 Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
They have oppressed me from my youth,
let Israël declare:
"They've sorely pressed me from my youth,
yet not victorious were!"
 —Psalm 129:1-2
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me. I, I am the Lord, and besides me there is no savior.
—Isaiah 43:10b-11
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Every visible shape of the deity which we devise is diametrically opposed to the divine nature; and, therefore, the moment idols appear, true religion is corrupted and adulterated.
 —John Calvin, Institutes 2.8.17
TODAY'S PRAYER
Dear Savior, keep me from fashioning you after my own imaginings. May I not make any idol or image of you, but know you as you are...
 —F.B. Meyer
YOUR OWN PRAYERS
 Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

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
