We Seek to Know Christ’s Love and Minister in His Name

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts,

as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and glory, forever.

Amen.

 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MORNING PRAYER Faithful God, you remain when others forsake. When I am tempted to abandon myself today, help me to stay present to this moment, that I may know and do your will. Through the Creator who enfolds me, Christ who defends me, and the Spirit who never abandons me. Amen.

 

EVENING PRAYER: Mothering God, bring me back from today’s distractions to the stillness of your presence, that I may rest in your enfolding arms. Amen.

 

QUESTIONS FOR REFLECTION:

What has been holding you captive? What would you lose if you claimed Sabbath rest? What would you gain?
