Today’s morning and evening meditations are available here in both audio and script formats. The audio version is also available to download for free on the player.


Morning

Invitation

“Thanks be to God. He has given us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57)

Silence

(Spend few moments in silence and stillness).

Reading: Psalm 74

O God, why have you rejected us forever? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture? Remember your people, whom you redeemed.

We are given no signs from God; no prophets are left, and none of us knows how long this will be. How long will the enemy mock you, God? Will the foe revile your name forever. Why do you hold back your hand? Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them.

But God is my King from long ago; he brings salvation on the earth.

Prayer

• for the call to follow the way of love in our homes, neighborhoods, and workplaces

• for our capacity to serve the common good

• for those who work in the arts, theater, and the entertainment industry


Evening

Reading: Revelation 1:4-8

John,

To the seven churches in the province of Asia:

Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.

To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.

“Look, he is coming with the clouds,” and “every eye will see him, even those who pierced him,” and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.”

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who was, and who is, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

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

Jesus, glorious Savior, I see you resurrected, unable to be held in the grip of the grave, immortal and yet still so vibrantly human. You are the Son of God, Lord of the living and dead, head of the church, and you have completed all your work to bring home to the Father. Revive me in grace, strengthen me in the good fight, and assure me of my resurrection. To you be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (WLC)

Blessing

“Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29)
