New Testament Reading - Give Thanks and be Glad

thumb

4Always be full of joy in the Lord; I say it again, rejoice! 5Let everyone see that you are unselfish and considerate in all you do. Remember that the Lord is coming soon. 6Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. 7If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus.

8And now, brothers, as I close this letter, let me say this one more thing: Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others. Think about all you can praise God for and be glad about. 9Keep putting into practice all you learned from me and saw me doing, and the God of peace will be with you.

. . . . . Philippians 4:4-9

spare those who are condemned to die.
Christ, have mercy. E te Karaiti, kia aroha mai.

and give us your blessing of peace.
Lord, have mercy. E te Ariki, kia aroha mai.
