A Fountain of Life

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
The loving-kindness of the Lord
forever I will sing.
God's faithfulness to every age
my mouth in song shall bring.
 —Psalm 89:1 (Tune: Capel, CM)
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, so that one may avoid the snares of death.
—Proverbs 14:27
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
A saving, though an unmethodical knowledge of Christ, will bring us to heaven, but a regular and methodical, as well as a saving knowledge of him, will bring heaven into us.
 —John Flavel, The Fountain of Life Opened Up
TODAY'S PRAYER
O God, within the sometimes puzzling experiences of this pilgrimage, I will gratefully sing of your steadfast love and your faithfulness—which, despite my stuttering steps and recurrent doubts, steadily develop a redeeming purpose to my life...
 —Eugene Peterson, Praying with the Psalms (89:1)
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
