Monday, June 1, 2020 – Psalm 91: 1-8

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say to the LORD,

"My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." 3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and

from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his

faithfulness is a shield and buckler. 5 You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor

the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall at your

side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 You will only look with your eyes and see

the recompense of the wicked.

Friday, May 29, 2020 – 1 Thessalonians 5:12-22

12 We appeal to you, brothers and sisters, to respect those who labor

among you, and have charge of you in the Lord and admonish you;

13 esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace

among yourselves.

14 And we urge you, beloved, to admonish the idlers, encourage the

fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with all of them.

15 See that none of you repays evil for evil, but always seek to do good to

one another and to all.

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing,

18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ

Jesus for you.

19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise the words of prophets,

21 but test everything; hold fast to what is good; 22 abstain from every form

of evil.

Luke

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

John 

29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes

away the sin of the world!

We Believe in One True God

We believe in one true God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, ever present help in need,

praised by all the heavenly host; by whose mighty power alone all is made and wrought and done.

We believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God and Mary's Son, who descended from his throne

and for us salvation won; by whose cross and death are we rescued from sin's misery.

We confess the Holy Ghost, who from both fore'er proceeds; who upholds and comforts us

in all trials, fears, and needs.  Blest and Holy Trinity, praise forwever be to thee!

 

Wednesday, May 27, 2020 - Strengthen Us for Work by Kenneth Moore a retired Disciples of Christ minister.

Let us pray,

Creator God, source of love and compassion, we come to You today with

hearts heavy for those who suffer from the symptoms of Covid-19 and their

families and friends.

We pray for all those whose livelihood has been impacted by this

pandemic.

Hear our prayers as well for the lonely and depressed who are weary from

being homebound for months.

We pray, O God, that your Spirit might fill us and thus encourage us to

continue to discover new and creative ways to love our neighbor. May the

Church find in these troubled times new opportunities for rich and

significant ministries that are not limited to church buildings alone.

Strengthen us to work for the healing of all as we may join with You in

building networks of unfailing love and redemptive grace. This we pray in

Your many names. Amen.

 

Tuesday, May 26, 2020 – “My Task” by Maude Louise Ray, 1913

To love some one more dearly every day,

To help a wandering child to find his way,

To ponder o’er a noble thought and pray,

And smile when evening falls –

     This is my task.

To follow truth as blind men seek for light,

To do my best from dawn of day till night,

To keep my heart fit for His holy sight,

And answer when He calls –

     This is my task.

And then my Savior by & by to meet,

When faith hath made her task on earth complete,

And lay my homage at the Master’s feet,

Within the jasper walls –

     This crowns my task.
