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 Grace and Strength

Lord God, I pray that you will fill my heart with the blessing of your Holy Spirit. Grant me this day the strength to be temperate in all things, diligent in my duties, and patient under my afflictions. Direct me in all my ways. Give me grace to be just and upright in all my dealings; quiet and peaceable; full of compassion; and ready to do good to all people, according to my abilities and opportunities. For the sake of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,


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.

Gospel of Matthew 6:16-21

The Sermon on the Mount [Part 9] - Lay up Your Treasure

Moreover, when you fast, do not wear a somber expression like the hypocrites; for they disfigure their faces, so that others will know that they are fasting. Truly I say to you, They have received their reward. But you, when you fast, should anoint your head, and wash your face, so that your fasting will not be seen by men, but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you.

Store not your treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust consume, and where thieves break through and steal; but store for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consume, and where thieves do not break through or steal.

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

The lamp of the body is the eye; therefore if your eye is true, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is evil, your whole body will be full of darkness. If the light that is in you is darkness, how great the darkness is!

Quote of Charles Spurgeon

"It is an unfortunate thing for the Christian to become melancholy. If there is any man in the world that has a right to have a bright, clear face and a flashing eye, it is the man whose sins are forgiven him, who is saved with God's salvation."
