It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Daily Prayer, Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily. Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me.

Invitatory Psalm 84
How lovely is your dwelling place,
O Lord of hosts!
My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.
O Lord of hosts, my Ruler and my God,
at your altars even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house,
ever singing your praise!

Psalms 115, 116, 117

Daily Lectionary Reading, John 14:4-7

Lectio Divina
If you know me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him (John 14:7).

You are indeed my rock and my fortress; for your name's sake, lead me and guide me (Psalm 31:3).

Prayer for Today:
O Lord, you show us the way we should go. You show us what is true. Awaken in us the desire to follow your way. Amen.

Midday Psalm 119:137-152

Psalms 115, 116, 117
