Psalm 25:8-15

Good and upright is the Lord;
  therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right
  and teaches them his way.
All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful
  for those who keep the demands of his covenant.
For the sake of your name, O Lord,
  forgive my iniquity, though it is great.
Who, then, is the man that fears the Lord?
  He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.
He will spend his days in prosperity,
  and his descendants will inherit the land.
The Lord confides in those who fear him;
  he makes his covenant known to them.
My eyes are ever on the Lord,
  for only he will release my feet from the snare.


Midday Prayer

Everlasting God,
in whom we live and move and have our being:
You have made us for yourself,
so that our hearts are restless
until they rest in you.

Give us purity of heart and strength of purpose,
that no selfish passion may hinder us
from knowing your will,
no weakness keep us from doing it;
that in your light we may see light clearly,
and in your service find perfect freedom;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.


John 11:38-44 NIV

Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. “Take away the stone,” he said.
  “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”

  Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

  So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”

  When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.

  Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”


2 Corinthians 13:14 NIV

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
