Prayer by Charles Spurgeon link
Lord, we want to live while we live.
We do pray that we may not merely groan out an existence here below,
nor live as earthworms crawling back in our holes and dragging now and then a withered leaf with us;
but Oh! give us to live as we ought to live,
with a new life that You have put in us,
with the divine quickening which has lifted us as much above common men as men are lifted above the beasts that perish.
Do not let us always be hampered like poor half-hatched birds within the egg;
may we chip the shell today and get out in the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Grant us this, we pray You.
A Prayer of Richard of Chichester-mid 13th century link
Thanks be to you, our Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits which you have given us,
for all the pains and insults which you have borne for us.
Most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
may we know you more clearly,
love you more dearly,
and follow you more nearly,
day by day.

Scripture Reading: Hebrews 10:36-38 (NASB Bible Gateway)
For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. For yet in a very little while, He who is coming will come; and will not delay, but My righteous one shall live by faith; and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.
(1) How is faith in God different from faith in religion or faith in rituals?
(2) Why is it difficult to believe that God is orchestrating all events in your life for your good?
(3) Talk about what helps you as a Christian when your faith in God is small even though He is faithful.
The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.
Amen Numbers 6:24
Thank you for spending your precious time worshipping the Lord.
