King of Saints

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
The creatures of your flock then made
their dwelling places there;
and in your goodness, for the poor,
O God, you did prepare.
 —Psalm 68:10 (Tune: Marlow CM)
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior that he might give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.
—Acts 5:31
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Christ is Lord of all the world, but he prizeth no title like that of king of saints, to rule as Lord in the church; no throne like the conscience of a humbled sinner. The heart is Christ's best presence-chamber: he loveth to have his chair of state set there. He had an eternal right together with the Father and the Holy Ghost, but he would come an suffer and be crowned with a crown of thorns that he might have a new right as mediator, and have the crown of glory put upon his head in the church.
 —Thomas Manton
TODAY'S PRAYER
O Sovereign of the highest heaven, occupy the throne of my heart; take full possession and reign supreme; lay low every rebel lust; manifest thy mighty power, and make me thine forever. Thou art worthy to be praised with my every breath, loved with my every faculty, served with my every act of life...

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
