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

Lord, teach me to number my days aright, that I may gain wisdom of heart.

Help me do today the things that matter, not to waste the time I have.

The moments I have are precious, Lord, see that I count them dear. Teach me to number my days aright. Fill me this day with your kindness, that I may be glad and rejoice all the days of my life. Through Christ I pray,


Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.



Now unto him that is able to keep me from falling, and to present me faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever.

God be with you 'til we meet again.

Psalm 130:5-6

I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.

I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning,

more than watchmen wait for the morning.

Judges 15:14-20

Samson Part 7 — The Jawbone of an Ass

Samson arrived at Lehi. The Philistines shouted at the sight of him. But the Spirit of the Lord was with him, and the thick ropes on his arms began to burn like flax on fire and fell from his hands.

On the ground, he spotted the jawbone of an ass. He picked it up, and with it, he felled a thousand men. Then he said:

"With the jawbone of the ass
I have made piles of donkeys;
With the jawbone of an ass
I have slain a thousand men."

When he had spoken, he threw away the jawbone and named the place Ramath-Lehi [which means "Hill of the Jawbone"];

He was parched with thirst, and called to the Lord, saying "You have given Your servant this amazing salvation; but now, I am dying from thirst, and will fall into the hand of the uncircumcised." So God cleft the hollow in Lehi, and water flowed from it. Samson drank, and he was revived, and his spirits returned. From then on, the spot was called Therefore the name of it was called En-hakkore [which means "the spring of he who called"]; it is at Lehi to this day.

And Samson judged Israel, in the days of the Philistines, for 20 years.
