Great Is Your Faithfulness

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
O Lord of hosts, my King and God,
how greatly blest are they,
who in thy temple always dwell,
and there thy praise display!
 —Psalm 84:4
Suggested tune: Dundee (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness.
—Lamentations 2:22-23
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
God of our life, through all the circling years,
     we trust in thee.
In all the past, through all our hopes and fears,
     thy hand we see.
With each new day, when morning lifts the veil,
we own thy mercies, Lord, which never fail.

God of the past, our times are in thy hand;
     with us abide.
Lead us by faith to hope’s true promised land;
     be thou our Guide.
With thee to bless, the darkness shines as light,
and faith’s fair vision changes into sight.

God of the coming years, through paths unknown
     we follow thee.
When we are strong, Lord, leave us not alone;
     our Refuge be.
Be thou for us in life our daily bread,
our heart’s true Home when all our years have sped.
—Hugh Kerr

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
