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.

Amen.

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.

Amen.

Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart; Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art. Thou my best Thought, by day or by night, Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word; I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord; Thou my great Father, I Thy true son; Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight; Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight; Thou my soulís Shelter, Thou my high Tower: Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor manís empty praise, Thou mine Inheritance, now and always: Thou and Thou only, first in my heart, High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won, May I reach Heavenís joys, O bright Heavenís Sun! Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

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.

Amen.


Think of the day ahead in terms of God with you, and visualize health, strength, guidance, purity, calm confidence, and victory as the gifts of His presence.

Gospel of Matthew, 16:21-28

Christ turns his eye towards Jerusalem

[Jesus and the apostles are in the area of Caesarea Philippi. In the previous verses, Jesus has admitted that he is the Christ, and has anointed Peter to be the "rock" upon which he will build his church.]

From that time Jesus began to let his disciples know that he must go to Jerusalem; and that there he would suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.

Peter took hold of him, and scolded him, saying, "This is never going to happen. Let this be far from you."

But he turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan. You are becoming a stumbling-block to me, because you are worried about human things, not the things of God."

Then he said to his disciples, "If anyone wants to come with me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. Whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. What profit does someone have, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his life? What will a man give in exchange for his life?

For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he will reward every man according to his deeds. Truly, some who stand here will not taste death until they see the Son of man in his kingdom.
