Come to Me

Jesus said to the crowds: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

Life as a Sister: Using Your Gifts

Bless His Name

Sing to the Lord a new song;  sing to the Lord, all you lands.
Sing to the Lord; bless his name; announce his salvation, day after day.

Tell his glory among the nations; among all peoples, his wondrous deeds.
Say among the nations: The Lord is king; he governs the peoples with equity.

Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice; let the sea and what fills it resound; let the plains be joyful and all that is in them!
Then let all the trees of the forest rejoice.

They shall exult before the Lord, for he comes; for he comes to rule the earth.
He shall rule the world with justice and the peoples with his constancy.

– Psalm 96: 1, 2, 3, 10ac, 11-12, 13

HEAR GOD

I will hear what God proclaims;
the Lord-for he proclaims peace to his people.
Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
glory dwelling in our land.

Kindness and truth shall meet;
justice and peace shall kiss.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and justice shall look down from heaven.

The Lord himself will give his benefits;
our land shall yield its increase.
Justice shall walk before him,
and salvation, along the way of his step.

Psalm 85: 9ab, 10, 11-12, 13-14

Son of David

As Jesus passed by, two blind men followed him, crying out, “Son of David, have pity on us!” When he entered the house, the blind men approached him and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I can do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they said to him. Then he touched their eyes and said, “Let it be done for you according to your faith.” And their eyes were opened. Jesus warned them sternly, “See that no one knows about this.” But they went out and spread word of him through all that land.

– Matthew 9:27-31

Sing This Song

On that day they will sing this song in the land of Judah: “A strong city have we; he sets up walls and ramparts to protect us. Open up the gates to let in a nation that is just, one that keeps faith. A nation of firm purpose you keep in peace; in peace, for its trust in you.”

Trust in the Lord forever! For the Lord is an eternal Rock. He humbles those in high places, and the lofty city he brings down; He tumbles it to the ground, levels it with the dust. It is trampled underfoot by the needy, by the footsteps of the poor.

Isaiah 26: 1-6

CALLED

As Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen. He said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed him. He walked along from there and saw two other brothers, James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They were in a boat, and their father Zebedee, mending their nets. He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father and followed him.

Matthew 4: 18-22

Revealed to the Childlike

Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”

Turning to the disciples in private he said, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. For I say to you, many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”

Luke 10:21-24

I REJOICED

I rejoiced when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
And now our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem.
Jerusalem, built as a city, walled about.
There the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, as it was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
There are the thrones of justice, the thrones of the house of David.

For the peace of Jerusalem pray: “May those who love you prosper!
May peace be within your ramparts, prosperity within your towers.”
For the sake of my brothers and friends I say, “Peace be with you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord, our God, I pray for your good.

Psalm 122

Give Thanks

I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart;
    before the gods I sing your praise;
 I bow down toward your holy temple
    and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness;
    for you have exalted your name and your word
    above everything.
 On the day I called, you answered me,
    you increased my strength of soul.

 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord,
    for they have heard the words of your mouth.
 They shall sing of the ways of the Lord,
    for great is the glory of the Lord.

– Psalm 138: 1-5

Remain With Us, Lord

(Intercessions for Morning Prayer, November 23, 2016)

Blessed by God our Savior, who promised to remain with his Church all days, until the end of the world. Let us give him thanks and call out:
Remain with us, Lord.

Remain with us the whole day, Lord,
– let your grace be a sun that never sets.
Remain with us, Lord.

We dedicate this day to you as an offering,
– do not let us offer anything that is evil.
Remain with us, Lord.

May your gift of light pervade this whole day,
– that we may be the salt of the world.
Remain with us, Lord.

May the love of your Holy Spirit direct our hearts and our lips,
– and may we always act in accordance with your will.
Remain with us, Lord.
