Nothing of Your Own

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
In Zion, then I'll sing thy praise
to all that love thy Name;
and with loud shouts of grateful joy
thy saving power proclaim!
 —Psalm 9:14
Suggested tune: McKee (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
Look, the Sovereign, the Lord of hosts, will lop the boughs with terrifying power; the tallest trees will be cut down, and the lofty will be brought low.
—Isaiah 10:33
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
If you have a rag of self-righteousness, off with it! If you have anything whatever of your own to depend upon, off with it! And if anyone can swim in the sea of Divine Love, you are the one! And, let me add, a naked spirit was never drowned there. Lay hold on Jesus with nothing of your own in your hands, and you will never perish; no one will snatch you out of his hand" [see John 10:28]. May God bless these words to us all for his love's sake.
—Charles Spurgeon
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
May I glory in nothing but your Name, O God, for nothing can lift me up but your hand...
 
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
