Is It Nothing to You?

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
Our folly's sad effects we feel,
for, drunk with discord's cup, we reel;
but now, for them who thee revered,
thou hast thy truth's bright banner reared
 —Psalm 60:3-4
Suggested tune: Abends (LM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by?
—Lamentations 1:12
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Oh all ye, who pass by, whose eyes and mind
to worldly things are sharp, but to me blind;
to me, who took eyes that I might you find:
                Was ever grief like mine?
—George Herbert (1633)
 
TODAY'S PRAYER

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.

Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
