Good morning everyone. Let’s praise the Lord right now. Lord you are good and your mercy endures forever. We worship you for who you are, God all by Yourself. You cover us with your glory on a moment to moment basis!

Today’s Prayer

Gracious heavenly Father, You have created each of us for Your purposes. You have a plan for our lives. It is up to us to build a relationship with You, to discover what You want for us. Our greatest worth and happiness depends on this. Remind us that we are made in Your image, just as Jesus was when “He emptied Himself,”* and became flesh and blood. His Spirit was His connection to You, just as our spirits becomes when we acknowledge You as God and accept Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins. He had a soul, just as we have – a mind, will, and emotions — one’s unique personality. Jesus chose to always seek Your will, and to be obedient to it. We have the same choice, for We can know Your will through the Word and by Jesus’ example, with the Holy Spirit’s guidance. We have a physical, destructible body, just as Jesus had. How we take care of it, and use it, is a test of our commitment to You, for You have called us “to be holy as You are holy,” for our greatest fulfillment, and for Your purposes. Open our eyes to see this, Lord. Walk with us, and help us to desire to share Your love and Your Word, that together we can make this a better world. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Our Shelter

Psalm 91

1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 This I declare of the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I am trusting him. 3 For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from the fatal plague. 4 He will shield you with his wings. He will shelter you with his feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. 5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor fear the dangers of the day, 6 nor dread the plague that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. 7 Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. 8 But you will see it with your eyes; you will see how the wicked are punished. 9 If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, 10 no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your dwelling. 11 For he orders his angels to protect you wherever you go. 12 They will hold you with their hands to keep you from striking your foot on a stone. 13 You will trample down lions and poisonous snakes; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! 14 The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. 15 When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue them and honor them. 16 I will satisfy them with a long life and give them my salvation.”

Quote of the Day

I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No. I wouldn’t touch a leper for thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.
