The Kingdom of God Is WIthin You

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
The Lord is good, fresh acts of grace
his pity still supplies;
his anger moves with slowest pace,
his willing mercy flies.
 —Psalm 145:8
Suggested tune: Azmon (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
The kingdom of God is within you
—Luke 17:21
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
O you soul, then, most beautiful of creatures, who so long to know the place where your Beloved is, that you may seek him, and be united to him, you know now that you are yourself that very tabernacle where he dwells, the secret chamber of his retreat where he is hidden. Rejoice, therefore, and exult, because all your good and all your hope is so near you as to be within you
 —John of the Cross
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Forgive me, Lord, when I look to other creatures to deliver the kingdom, when you have told me to look within...
 
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
