Choose Life

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
Since great thy tender mercies are
to all who thee adore,
according to thy judgments, Lord,
my fainting hopes restore.
 —Psalm 119:156
Suggested tune: Horsely (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live.
—Deuteronomy 30:19
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Hearing, believing, considering, all depend upon choice. Without choice, and a determined, fixed, bent of heart, you will never walk evenly in heaven’s ways. Determine not only that you must, but you will, walk in the way which God hath set forth for you.
 —Thomas Manton (alt.)
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Without your grace I cannot choose your ways, O God. Grant me, therefore, not only strength to obey your Word, but to want to obey it...
 
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
