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

O God, the King eternal, whose light divides the day from the night and turns the shadow of death into the morning: Drive far from us all wrong desires, incline our hearts to keep your law, and guide our feet into the way of peace; that, having done your will with cheerfulness during the day, we may, when night comes, rejoice to give you thanks; through Jesus Christ our Lord.



Christ, as a light illumine and guide me.
Christ, as a shield overshadow me.
Christ under me; Christ over me;
Christ beside me on my left and my right.
This day be within and without me,
lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.
Be in the heart of each to whom I speak;
in the mouth of each who speaks unto me.
This day be within and without me,
lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.
Christ as a light; Christ as a shield;
Christ beside me on my left and my right.


May the peace of the Lord Christ go with us, wherever He may send us. May He guide us through the wilderness, protect us through the storm. May He bring us home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown us. May He bring us home rejoicing once again into our doors.


(Additional prayers may be found at Prayers for All Occasions.)
God be with you 'til we meet again.

Gospel of Matthew, 17:22-23

Christ Fortells His Death and Resurrection

"While they were in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of man shall be delivered up into the hands of men; and they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised up." And they were filled with sorrow.

Comment on the Scripture

Christ and the apostles have finished their wanderings, the mission of teaching and healing in Galilee and the areas surrounding it, and are ready to make the final trip to Jerusalem. For the first time, Christ clearly tells his apostles what is in store for him when he reaches Jerusalem.

The last leg of Christ's mission means that we are reaching the last leg of our series on Matthew, which follows the gospel's account of Christ's teaching journey, beginning with his baptism and ending with the events celebrated on Palm Sunday. We will pick up the story in Lent, finishing the Gospel of Matthew during Lent and the Easter season.

Some of the most known and loved teachings of Christ occurred during his final journey, so we have several weeks left in this segment.
