Sunday, Week 12
Give us each day our daily bread.
— Luke 11:3 (BSB)
See that you do not use the trick of prayer to cover up what you know you ought to do.
— Oswald Chambers
We would sing of Your mercies, O Lord. We would make known Your faithfulness. You are the same yesterday, and today, yes, and forever. You never change. Your word is settled forever. Not a jot or a tittle of it can ever fail. The mountains shall depart and the hills be removed — but Your kindness shall not depart from us, nor the covenant of Your peace be removed forever.
O Lord God Almighty, who is a strong Lord like unto You! Your faithfulness surrounds You. You rule the raging of the sea. When the waves thereof arise — You still them. The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; as for the world with the fullness thereof — You have founded it. You have a mighty arm; strong is Your hand, and high is Your right hand. Justice and judgment are the foundation of Your throne; mercy and truth shall go before You.
We thank You, O God, that on this holy day we can rest so confidently on Your eternal faithfulness. May the gospel wherever preached today, reveal to needy hearts Your love and truth. May Your servants sent forth with the messages of Your love, be faithful in representing You. Let a blessing rest on our pastor, as he preaches Your word, and leads us in Your worship. May he be full of the Holy Spirit. May he come from Your very presence, and may the light shine in his face as it shone on the face of Moses when he had been with You for forty days in the mount. Prepare us and all Your people for the worship of the sanctuary. Bless all Sunday schools and all meetings of whatever kind held today for Your worship. May this be a day full of Jesus and of power. And may the grace of Jesus be upon us all forever. Amen.
