A Prayer of Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109) Link
O merciful God, fill our hearts, we pray, with the graces of Your Holy Spirit,
With love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.
Teach us to love those who hate us, to pray for those who despitefully use us,
That we may be the children of our Father,
Who makes Your sun shine on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
In adversity, grant us grace to be patient; in prosperity keep us humble;
May we guard the door of our lips; may we lightly esteem the pleasures of this world,
And thirst after heavenly things; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
This is a prayer from the church father Irenaeus (died 202 C.E.) Link
"Give growing maturity to beginners,
O Father; give intelligence to the little ones;
Give aid to those who are running their course.
Give sorrow to the negligent; give fervor of spirit to the lukewarm.
Give to the mature a good end; for the sake of Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.

Scripture Reading: Hebrews 10:28-29 (NASB Bible Gateway)
Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?
Benediction: Jude 1:24-25
To him who is able to keep you from stumbling
And to present you before his glorious presence without fault
And with great joy to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore!
Thank you for spending your precious time worshipping the Lord.
