Morning Prayer

Jan 22 - 28

OPENING RESPONSE

Our Lord, Jesus is manifesting His glory!

O Come, let us adore Him!

 

O come, let us adore Him! O come, let us adore Him!

O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.

 

Open our lips, O God

And our mouths will

proclaim Your praise.

 

MORNING SONG – TFWS # 2244

 

Every day they pass me by; I can see it in their eyes:

empty people filled with care, headed who knows where.

On they go through private pain, living fear to fear.  

Laughter hides their silent cry only Jesus hears.


People need the Lord.  People need the Lord.

At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door.

People need the Lord; People need the Lord.

When will we realize, people need the Lord.

 

OPENING PRAYER

Discipling Lord: desiring to be made like You, 

we come to read Your Word.  Give us grace to conform

our lives to it, becoming doers of the Word and not hearer

only, so that others might see Jesus in our lives and be drawn

to Him.  This we pray for the sake of Your Kingdom.  Amen!

 

THE WORD OF THE LORD

F       Isa 50:1–11Ps 40 & 54; Gal 3:15–22; Mk 6:47–56;

S       Isa 51:1 – 8Ps 55; Gal 3:23–29; Mk 7:1–23;

 

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH

The Apostle’s Creed

 

I believe in God the Father Almighty, 

Creator of heaven and earth!

 

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was:

Conceived by the Holy Spirit; born of the Virgin Mary;

suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended to the dead. On the third day, He rose again;

He ascended to heaven, is seated at the right hand of the Father,

and will come again to judge the living and the dead.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy catholic church; 

the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen!

PRAYER OF THE DAY

Fri – Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first He suffered pain and entered not into glory before He was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through Your Son Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen.

 

Sat – Almighty God, who, after the creation of the world, rested from all Your works and sanctified a day of rest for all Your creatures: Grant that we, putting away all earthly anxieties may be duly prepared for the serve of Your sanctuary, and that our rest here upon earth may be a preparation for the eternal rest promised to Your people in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

 

MORNING SONG – TFWS # 2244

We are called to take His light to a world where wrong seems right.

What could be too great a cost for sharing love with one whose lost?

In our heart we all can feel all the grief they bear; 

they must hear the words of life only we can share.

People need the Lord.  People need the Lord.

At the end of broken dreams,  He’s the open door.

People need the Lord;  People need the Lord.

When will we realize, people need the Lord.

 

CLOSING PRAYER

Lord, if You need someone to serve today, I volunteer.

Within my home and on the street, I will show Your love

to all I meet.  And when this day is over, may I hear Your

sweet voice whisper: “Well Done.” In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
