Opening Sentance

Keep steady my footsteps, O God, according to your promise. . . . .Psalm 119:133.

Always be joyful, pray continually;
give thanks, whatever happens.

Psalm 34:8-15

8 Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—
how good God is.
Blessed are you who run to him.

9 Worship God if you want the best;
worship opens doors to all his goodness.

10 Young lions on the prowl get hungry,
but God-seekers are full of God.

11 Come, children, listen closely;
I’ll give you a lesson in God worship.

12 Who out there has a lust for life?
Can’t wait each day to come upon beauty?

13 Guard your tongue from profanity,
and no more lying through your teeth.

14 Turn your back on sin; do something good.
Embrace peace — don’t let it get away!

15 God keeps an eye on his friends,
his ears pick up every moan and groan.

Morning Prayer

Lord,
thank you for your abundant, abounding grace.
Thank you that we don't have to earn a drop
  of the mighty river of grace
  that flows freely for us today.
Thank you for the unexpected, unmerited favor
  you've showered on my life.
Help me put myself in the path of your love and grace.
Help me not neglect the disciplines I need
  to meet with you regularly
  and to drink from the water of life.
Thank you for your rich love.
Amen.
