When our requests are such as honor God, we may ask as largely as we will. The more daring the request, the more glory accrues to God when the answer comes. (A.W. Tozer)
This Week’s Scripture
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
who alone does wondrous things.
19 Blessed be his glorious name forever;
may the whole earth be filled with his glory!
My Hope Is Built (verse 1)
My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ the solid rock I stand,
all other ground is sinking sand.
Take time now to offer God your praise and worship.
22 For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 23 but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! (Romans 7:22-25a)
Blot out, we humbly beseech Thee, O Lord, our past transgression; forgive our negligence and ignorance; help us to amend our mistakes and to repair our misunderstandings; and so uplift our hearts in new love and dedication, that we may be unburdened from the grief and shame of past faithlessness, and go forth to serve Thee with renewed courage and devotion; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Author unknown)
As David did in Psalm 139, ask the Lord to search you and know you through and through. Confess the sins God brings to mind, knowing you are forgiven and that He will cleanse you from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
God of compassion, so often I am restless, stressed, and without peace in this world. Like Martha, I often find myself worried about a great many things. Yet I know this is not your desire for me. Moreover, you have provided for me all the resources of heaven to give me far better that that. That’s why I am so grateful for the words of my Lord Jesus who told me to come to him for he will give me rest. He commands me, even today, to take his yoke and learn from him, for he is gentle and lowly in heart and in him will my soul find rest, here and for all eternity. I praise you, O God, for his easy yoke and light burden. Please teach and enable me to live in them this day and everyday throughout the rest of my life. Amen. (based on Matthew 11:28-30)
Spend some time reflecting on the prayer of thanksgiving above and then thank God for who he is and the many ways he has poured out his goodness and grace in your life.

All men desire peace, but very few desire those things that make for peace. (Thomas A Kempis)

Listen, my son, and be wise, and set your heart on the right path: (Proverbs 23:19)
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
