Here, and in All Worlds

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
To all the list'ning nations, Lord,
thy wonders I will tell;
and to the people sing thy praise
that round about me dwell,
because thy mercy's boundless height
the highest heav'n transcends,
and far beyond th' aspiring clouds
thy faithful truth extends.
 —Psalm 108:3-4
Suggested tune: Ellacombe (CMD)



 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
—Hebrews 13:8
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Oh, take me not back through the long ages to a Christ that was! He is! He lives! He is here! I can never again be alone, never grope in the dark for a hand, never be forsaken or forlorn. Never need a Guide, a Master, a Friend, or a Husband to my soul. I have him, who suffices for uncounted myriads in the dateless noon of eternity. He who was everything in the yesterday of the past, and who will be everything in the tomorrow of the future, is mine today; and at each present moment of my existence—here, and in all worlds.
—F.B. Meyer
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Thank you, Lord Jesus Christ, not only that you died for me in the past and rose from the dead that I might have eternal life in the future, but that you are with me now to face the problems of today...

 
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
