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,

Heavenly Lord, I know I am not alone saying these prayers or reading your Word this morning, but many people unknown to me, from all stations of life, have joined together in this brief moment of devotion.

Psalm 119:137-141

O Lord, you are righteous, and your regulations are fair.

Your laws are perfect and completely trustworthy.

I am overwhelmed with indignation, for my enemies have disregarded your words.

Your promises have been thoroughly tested; that is why I love them so much.

I am insignificant and despised, but I dont forget your commandments.

Judith 14:10-19

The Assyrians Discover Holofernes' Body

Now Achior, seeing all that the God of Israel had done, believed firmly in him. He had the flesh of his foreskin circumcised, and he has been united with the house of Israel to the present day. At daybreak they hung the head of Holofernes on the wall. Then all the Israelite men took up their arms and went to the slopes of the mountain. When the Assyrians saw them, they notified their captains; these, in turn, went to the generals and division leaders and all their other commanders.

They came to the tent of Holofernes and said to the one in charge of all his things, "Waken our master, for the slaves have dared come down to give us battle, to their utter destruction."

Bagoas went in, and knocked at the entry of the tent, presuming that he was sleeping with Judith. As no one answered, he parted the curtains, entered the bedroom, and found him lying on the floor, a headless corpse. He broke into a loud clamor of weeping, groaning, and howling, and rent his garments. Then he entered the tent where Judith had her quarters; and, not finding her, he rushed out to the troops and cried:

"The slaves have duped us! A single Hebrew woman has brought disgrace on the house of King Nebuchadnezzar. Here is Holofernes headless on the ground!"

When the commanders of the Assyrian army heard these words, they rent their tunics and were seized with consternation. Loud screaming and howling arose in the camp.
