Living & Ever-Present

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
How many works, Lord,
in wisdom you've made!
How full on the earth,
your riches displayed!
Out yonder the ocean,
how great and how wide,
where small and great creatures
unnumbered abide!
 —Psalm 104:24-25
Suggested tune: Lyons (10.10.11.11)


SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.
—Romans 8:14
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
A true Christian life is a personally conducted life, conducted at every turn by a Divine Person. It is the believer's privilege to be absolutely set free from all care and worry and anxiety as to the decisions which we must make at any turn of life. The Holy Spirit undertakes all that responsibility for us. A true Christian life is not one governed by a long set of rules outside us, but led by a living and ever-present Person within us.
 —R.A. Torrey
TODAY'S PRAYER
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And you shall renew the face of the earth. O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy your consolations...
 —Prayer to the Holy Spirit, Emmaus Community
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
