What a wonderful opportunity we have before us to share the love of God. Chose a random person today and just do something nice for them for no other reason than you are a child of God.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come before you this morning standing in the gap for my brothers and sisters in Christ everywhere with a prayer I have presented on a number of occasions. We are always in a hurry and You are not. Remind us that most things that are really worth while were not achieved in a day! By faithful study and prayer, help us to create the climate for Your presence and Your miracles. Help us to build a day-to-day relationship with You, so that we can recognize Your actions in our lives, and remember to thank You and give You all the credit. It was You who kept us from having accidents as we went through our daily trials. In the wonderful name of Jesus I pray and give You thanks, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Psalm 51

Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins. Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night. Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight. You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just. For I was born a sinner— yes, from the moment my mother conceived me. But you desire honesty from the womb, teaching me wisdom even there. Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Oh, give me back my joy again; you have broken me— now let me rejoice. Don’t keep looking at my sins. Remove the stain of my guilt. Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Do not banish me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. Then I will teach your ways to rebels, and they will return to you. Forgive me for shedding blood, O God who saves; then I will joyfully sing of your forgiveness. Unseal my lips, O Lord, that my mouth may praise you. You do not desire a sacrifice, or I would offer one. You do not want a burnt offering. The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God. Look with favor on Zion and help her; rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Then you will be pleased with sacrifices offered in the right spirit— with burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings. Then bulls will again be sacrificed on your altar.

Quote of the Day

Lifestyle worship is sacrificial. A sacrifice is a gift of the essence or the product of our lives. It may be a gift of our time, a gift of our talent, or a gift of our treasure. Whatever shape it takes, it is a sacrifice given with no regard for a return on the investment. ~John Garmo~
