lessons and scripture

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 trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever.


Prayer for the Morning

Oh Lord, most heavenly Father, Almighty and everlasting God, who has safely brought me to the beginning of this day; I give you thanks for my creation, preservation, and all the blessings of my life. Grant that this day I fall into no sin, neither run into any kind of danger; but that all my doings, being governed by your will, may be righteous in your sight. Through Christ our Lord, I pray.


Prayer for Guidance

Oh God the King eternal, who divides the day from the darkness, and has turned the shadow of death into the light of morning; I pray that this day you will incline my heart to keep your commandments, driving temptation from my mind. Guide my feet into the way of peace; that having done your will with cheerfulness while it was day, I may, when the night comes, rejoice in giving you thanks for a day lived in your presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Community of Prayer

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be among the community of all who pray in the name of Christ this morning, and remain among us always.

God be with you 'til we meet again.

There shall be no more death

Book of Daniel, 2:14-23

God Gives Knowledge to Daniel

Arioch, the captain of the king's guard, had sallied forth to kill the wise men of Babylon. Daniel responded to him, advisedly and with wisdom: "Why is the king's decree so hasty?" So Arioch told Daniel everything.

Daniel entered the castle and asked that the king give him time to hear his interpretation. Then he went home and told his companions, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, so that they could ask for the mercy of the God of heaven concerning this secret; thus, Daniel and his fellows might not be killed with the other wise men of Babylon.

The secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision, and Daniel blessed the God of heaven for it. Daniel spoke, saying,

"Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his.
He changes the times and the seasons: he removes kings, and sets up kings.
He gives the wise their wisdom, and knowledge to those who will understand.
He reveals the deep and secret things: he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him."

I thank you, and praise you, O God of my fathers, who has given me wisdom and might. Now, you have given me what we asked for: deep understanding of the king's problem.
