The Faithful Messenger

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
Lord, you're the portion of my cup,
and my inheritance;
you've given me the lot I have,
kept in your providence.
The bound'ries you've set for me
enclose a pleasant site;
this beautiful inheritance
is truly my delight!
 —Psalm 16:5-6
Suggested tune: St. Louis (86.86.76.86)

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.

Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
