Psalm 101

I will sing of your love and justice;
  to you, O Lord, I will sing praise.
I will be careful to lead a blameless life-
  when will you come to me?
I will walk in my house
  with blameless heart.
I will set before my eyes
  no vile thing.
The deeds of faithless men I hate;
  they will not cling to me.
Men of perverse heart shall be far from me;
  I will have nothing to do with evil.
Whoever slanders his neighbor in secret,
  him will I put to silence;
whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart,
  him will I not endure.
My eyes will be on the faithful in the land,
  that they may dwell with me;
he whose walk is blameless
  will minister to me.
No one who practices deceit
  will dwell in my house;
no one who speaks falsely
  will stand in my presence.
Every morning I will put to silence
  all the wicked in the land;
I will cut off every evildoer
  from the city of the Lord.


Midday Prayer

To your name, Lord Jesus,
help me to bow the knee
and all its worshiping,
bow the head
and all its thinking,
bow the will
and all its choosing,
bow the heart
and all its loving.


Matthew 20:29-34

As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”

The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”

Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.

“Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.”

Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.
