A More Sacred Relationship

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
To those who keep his word,
his covenant obey,
the lovingkindness of the Lord
and truth will be their way.
 —Psalm 25:10
Suggested tune: St. George (SM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
Whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith.
—Galatians 6:10
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
There are duties which we owe to all people arising out of a common nature; but the tie of a more sacred relationship, established by God himself, binds us to believers.
 —John Calvin
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Almighty and everlasting God, by your Spirit the whole body of the church is governed and sanctified. Hear my prayers for my brothers and sisters, that in the ministry to which you have called us we may serve you in holiness and truth...
 —trad.
 
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
