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 (written by Metropolitan Philaret)

Lord, give me the strength to greet the coming day in peace. Help me in all things to rely on Your holy will. Reveal Your will to me every hour of the day. Bless my dealings with all people. Teach me to treat all people who come to me throughout the day with peace of soul and with firm conviction that Your will governs all. In all my deeds and words guide my thoughts and feelings. In unexpected events, let me not forget that all are sent by you.

Teach me to act firmly and wisely, without embittering and embarrassing others. Give me the physical strength to bear the labors of this day. Direct my will, teach me to pray, pray in me.


Prayer for the Holy Spirit's Guidance

Gracious God, Send your Holy Spirit to deepen my worship life. Open my heart to the gifts and cultures which surround my church. Open my heart to the people who are different from me. In Jesus' name, I pray.



May the Passion of Christ be ever in my heart. May your law and your goodness guide my every thought, O Lord. And may the power of your Holy Spirit flow through my words and my actions.

Walk with me, so that I may not be alone as I face this day, but always in your presence. Your joy is a lighthouse in a world often dark with sin, and I pray that I may inspire others as I have been inspired. In the name of Christ, bless me this day, and all who I may meet.

God be with you 'til we meet again.

endless knot

Psalm 149:5-9

Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds.

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand,

To execute vengeance on the nations, And punishments on the peoples;

To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron;

To execute on them the written judgment This honor have all His saints.

Praise the Lord!

John 3:31-33

Heaven and Earth

He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way.

He who comes from heaven is above all. He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony. Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true.

Notes on the Scripture

John emphasizes a line sharply dividing two worlds: the earthly and the heavenly. Those who come from the earth belong to the earth, whereas He who comes from heaven is above all.

This is why we sin. Do you ever wonder why, in spite of all your prayers and struggles and even your heartfelt wishes, you still judge others, or act greedy, or have lustful thoughts? You can't help it. You have to try, but you cannot think that you or anyone else is going to succeed. "All sin and fall short of the glory of God."

So never let your sin get you down or defeat you. Evil is powerful and Satan is stronger than we are. The earth has a grip on us we cannot loosen. The holy spirit will take us a long way during our lives, and our belief in Christ will cleanse us of our sins. But we must never become discouraged, depressed, or downhearted. This is the day the Lord has made.
