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 77

I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me. When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands, and I would not be comforted.

Then I thought, “To this I will appeal: the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand to me. I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your deeds of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” Your ways, God, are a mystery. What god is as great as you? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power for people.

Prayer

• for deep wonder and gratitude for life

• for our capacity to suffer with others

• for those who are unemployed


Evening

Reading: 1 John 1

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our very eyes, which our hands have touched—this we tell you of now. This life appeared, and we proclaim to you its eternal qualities, which were with the Father and have appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you may also have joy with us.

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

Living God, open my eyes to see that the words of Scripture vibrate with your love and truth, and address these words to my heart. Amen. (BC)

Blessing

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