Blessed be God,
you have not rejected my prayer
or removed your steadfast love from me.
Invitatory Psalm 100
Make a joyful noies to the Lord, all the earth.
O Lord, we worship you with gladness;
we come into your presence with singing.
We know that you are God.
You have made us and we are yours;
we are your people, and the sheep of your pasture.
Psalms 12, 13, 17
Daily Lectionary Reading, Acts 17:22-28
The God who made the world and everything in it, he who is Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by human hands (Acts 17:24).
I cried aloud to him, and he was extolled with my tongue (Psalm 66:17)
Prayer for Today:
Save us from our narrowness. Save us from selfishness. Save us from searching for unknown gods. Save us from trying to limit your presence and impact on our lives. Open our eyes to see you in the majesty of creation and in all acts of human kindness. Amen. (excerpted from Prayers of the People, Richard Einerson).
Midday Psalm 119:17-24
