When we were still helpless,
Christ died for the wicked at the time God chose.
One of us might dare to die for someone good.
But now we see God’s love;
while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.
New Testament Reading - Put on Christ
10 Love does no wrong to anyone. That's why it fully satisfies all of God's requirements. It is the only law you need.
11Another reason for right living is this: you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for the coming of the Lorda is nearer now than when we first believed. 12,13 The night is far gone, the day of his return will soon be here. So quit the evil deeds of darkness and put on the armour of right living, as we who live in the daylight should! Be decent and true in everything you do so that all can approve your behaviour. Don't spend your time in wild parties and getting drunk or in adultery and lust, or fighting, or jealousy, 14 But ask the Lord Jesus Christ to help you live as you should and don't make plans to enjoy evil.. . . . .Romans 13:10-14

Pray for 5 people on your heart ending with the prayer below.
We pray for… those in need:
those who suffer;
the lonely; the unloved;
those who grieve; and those who care for them…
Comfort and heal, merciful Lord,
all who are in sorrow, need, sickness, or any other trouble.
Give them a firm trust in your goodness;
help those who minister to them;
and bring us all into the joy of your salvation.
Father, hear our prayer,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
