Be still and know that I am God. -Ps 46:10
Be still and know that I am.
Be still and know.
Prayer of the Bible
My soul magnifies You, Lord, and my spirit rejoices in You, my Savior, For You, O Mighty One, have done great things for me, and holy is your name. Your mercy is on those who fear You, from generation to generation.
(Free expression of praise and thanksgiving to God)
Confession of Sin
“Jesus forgive me my sin and set me free from all evil passions, heal my heart of all disordered affections; that, I may be made fit to love, courageous to suffer, and steady to persevere."
-Thomas a Kempis (1380-1471)
(Time of silence for confession of sin)
The Words of Jesus
I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him. How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?
-John 5: 43-44
(Think deeply on these life-giving words of Jesus)
Prayers for Ourselves and Others
And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly.
(Time to bring before God our own needs and the needs of others)
Jesus help us to find you and love you in the weak and wounded of this world. This is a great mystery of the gospel, that you are hidden in those who are broken and poor. "Whatever you do for the least of my brothers and sisters, you do for me" (Matt. 25:40)
