Be pleased, O God, to deliver me.
O LORD, make haste to help me!
-from Psalm 70:1
Glory be to God the Father,
God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning, so it is now,
and so it ever shall be, world without end.
-the “Gloria Patri”
The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David; and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. And this is the name by which it will be called: “The Lord is our righteousness.”
-silence for reflection, meditation-
-pray for yourself, your loved ones, friends, enemies, the church, and the world-
Prayer for the Week
as your kingdom dawns,
turn us from the darkness of sin
to the light of holiness,
that we may be ready to meet you
in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ-
