The Administration of the Spirit

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
The Lord is crowned as King,
he's clothed with majesty;
the Lord has clothed himself with might
and great authority.
The world is firmly set,
and never moved can be;
and long-established is your throne
e'en from eternity.
 —Psalm 93:1-2 (Tune: Diademata SMD)
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace, who brings good news, who announces salvation, who says to Zion, 'Your God reigns.'
—Isaiah 52:7
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
There is nothing in the church more noble and glorious than the ministry of the Gospel, seeing it is the administration of the Spirit of righteousness and eternal life.
 —John Calvin, Institutes 4.3.3
TODAY'S PRAYER
God our Father, Lord of all the world, through your Son you have called us into the fellowship of your universal Church: hear our prayer for your faithful people that in their vocation and ministry each may be an instrument of your love, and give to your servants the needful gifts of grace; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ...
 —Church of England

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
