The Home of God

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
O God, let peoples praise you; let all the peoples praise.
The earth has brought its bounty throughout its harvest days;
since God, our God, will bless us; yes, God will blessing send,
that all the earth may fear him to its remotest end.
 —Psalm 67:5-7 (Tune: Aurelia 76.76 D)
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them as their God; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe every tear from their eyes.
—Revelation 21:3b-4a
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Even now the Word who dwelt among us makes his abode in every believing heart, and gathers them all together at last in that great city, round whose flashing foundations no tumult of ocean beats, whose gates of pearl need not be closed against any foes, with whose happy citizens God will dwell, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
 —Alexander Maclaren
TODAY'S PRAYER
Be with me this day, O God, and assure me through joyful times that you are the fresh air that I breathe; and in difficult times that you are the very ground on which I stand...
 
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
