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

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. 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 15:29-38

Second Feeding of the Multitudes

Jesus left Canaan and traveled to a place near the sea of Galilee, where he went up onto a mountain to sit. And great multitudes came to him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others. They fell prostrate before him, and he healed them.

The multitude was amazed when they saw the mute speak, the maimed made whole, the lame walk, and the blind see; and they glorified the God of Israel.

Jesus called his disciples to him, and said, "I feel compassion for these people, because they have been here for three days with nothing to eat. I don't want to send them away starving; they may faint on the way home."

The disciples replied, "Where would we find enough bread in this desert to feed so many?"

Jesus asked them, "How much bread do you have?" And they told him, "Seven, and several small fish."

He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, and, giving thanks, he broke them. He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes.

And they all ate, and were filled: and they gathered up the broken pieces that remained, which filled seven baskets. Four thousand men were fed, besides women and children.
