God Is True

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
His pinions shall thee hide; thy trust
under his wings shall be;
his faithfulness shall be a shield
 and buckler unto thee.
 —Psalm 91:4
Suggested tune: Crimond (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
In the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you to keep the commandment without spot or blame until the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ, which he will bring about at the right time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords.
—1 Timothy 6:13-15
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Let us listen to his witness, let us accept it, setting to our seals that God is true. Then let us try to echo it back by word, and to attest our confession by our conduct, and then we may comfort ourselves with the great word, 'Everyone who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before my Father in heaven.'
 —Alexander Maclaren
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Give me courage this day to confess my faith in you, dear Lord. May my words and my actions reflect not the values of the world around me, but your love, your justice, and your peace...
 
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
