An Evil Generation

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
Their God they served with empty words,
and with their tongues they lied;
their hearts were not sincere toward him,
his cov'nant they denied.
 —Psalm 78L36-37
Suggested tune: Morning Song (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
This generation is an evil generation; it asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.
—Luke 11:29
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
It ill becomes us to make our feelings a kind of test of our acceptance, or to say, 'I will not believe God if he does not indulge me with certain manifestations of grace. Unless he gives me the sweets I crave, I will be sulky and sullen, and refuse to eat a nutritious meal.'
 —Charles Spurgeon (alt.)
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Help me to see the fullness of Christ, O God—not just the wonders, but the cross and the empty tomb as well—and in seeing, may I believe in him, and you who sent him...
 
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
