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 4:1-11

Jesus is Tempted by Satan

After his baptism, the Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. He fasted forty days and forty nights, and was hungry. And the tempter came and said, "If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become bread." But Christ answered, "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God."

Then the devil took him into the holy city (Jerusalem) and set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down: for it is written: He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and, On their hands they shall bear thee up, Lest haply thou dash thy foot against a stone." Jesus replied, "Again it is written: Thou shalt not make trial of the Lord thy God."

Again, the devil took Jesus to a high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, their riches and glory; and he said, "All these things will I give to you, if you fall down and worship me." Jesus said, "Go away, Satan: for it is written: Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." So the devil left him; and angels came and ministered to him.

Psalm 19:9-12

(King James Version)

9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.

12 In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
