A Blessèd Truth to Contemplate

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
Blessèd be the Lord who heard me,
for the Lord's my strength and shield.
I am helped when my heart trusts him;
gladly singing, thanks I yield.
For the Lord's our source of power;
for his King a shield is he.
Bless, O God, and save your people;
shepherd us eternally.
 —Ps. 28:6-9 (Tune: In Babilone 87.87 D)
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.
—John 10:9
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Christ will open himself to us in answer to prayer. This is a blessed truth to contemplate. Christ opens his loving heart to his praying people. He opens his eternal hope to his praying people. He opens his enduring holiness to his praying people. He opens his invincible strength to his praying people.
 —T.M. Anderson, Prayer Availeth Much
TODAY'S PRAYER
Blessèd art thou, O God, and able in every situation to meet my needs and miseries. May I live by thee, may I live for thee, and may I never be satisfied with my Christian progress but as I resemble Christ...

YOUR OWN PRAYERS

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
