Gracious and Holy Father,
Please give me:
intellect to understand you,

wisdom to find you,
a spirit to know you,
a heart to meditate upon you,
ears to hear you,
eyes to to see you,
a tongue to proclaim you,
a way of life pleasing to you,
patience to wait for you
and perseverance to look for you.
Grant me a perfect end,
your holy presence,
a blessed resurrection
and life everlasting.
Trinitarian Pryaer of John Stott link
“Good morning heavenly Father, good morning Lord Jesus, good morning Holy Spirit.
Heavenly Father I worship you as the creator and sustainer of the universe.
Lord Jesus, I worship you, Saviour and Lord of the world.
Holy Spirit, I worship you, sanctifier of the people of God.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
Heavenly Father, I pray that I may live this day in your presence and please you more and more.
Lord Jesus, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you.
Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life:
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Holy, blessed and glorious Trinity, three persons in one God,
have mercy upon me. Amen.”

Scripture Reading: Hebrews 11:10 (NASB Bible Gateway)
for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
(1) Why is it that Christians spend little time talking about their final destination?
(2) If life here is characterized as “without foundation” in Scripture why do we spend so much time focusing on material things?
(3) In what way does an eternal perspective change what you do today?
Morning prayer link
Dear Lord, I give you my hands to do Your work;
I give You my feet to go Your way;
I give You my eyes to see as You see;
I give You my tongue to speak Your words;
I give You my mind that You may think in me;
I give You my spirit that You may pray in me.
Above all, I give You my heart that You may love in me
– love the Father and love all humankind.
I give You my whole self,
Lord, that You may grow in me, so that it is You who lives,
works and prays in me.
Thank you for spending your precious time worshipping the Lord.
