Morning

Invitation

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” (1 Peter 1:3)

Silence

(Spend few moments in silence and stillness).

Reading: Psalm 71

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame. In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me; turn your ear to me and save me. Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.

Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel. For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth. From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother’s womb.

I will ever praise you. I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God.

Prayer

• for an economy that works for the good of all people

• for worship that glorifies God and gathers, unites, and blesses people

• for those who work in finance


Evening

Reading: Colossians 3:1-4

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Silence

(Spend few moments in silence and stillness).

Dwelling

Remind yourself that you are in God’s presence as you read the passage again. Notice how God might be speaking to you through the words. Dwell on a word or phrase that jumps out at you. Let your heart respond to God in prayer.

Prayer

Lord God, I pray that my capacity to know and experience life might be magnified in Christ. By your grace set the eyes of my heart on Jesus, giving me a widened imagination to see everything from your perspective. (CD)

Blessing

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians. 3:20-21)
