Psalm 103:6-22

The Lord works righteousness
  and justice for all the oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses,
  his deeds to the people of Israel:
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
  slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
  nor will he harbor his anger forever;
he does not treat us as our sins deserve
  or repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
  so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
  so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
As a father has compassion on his children,
  so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
for he knows how we are formed,
  he remembers that we are dust.
As for man, his days are like grass,
  he flourishes like a flower of the field;
the wind blows over it and it is gone,
  and its place remembers it no more.
But from everlasting to everlasting
  the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
  and his righteousness with their children’s children-
with those who keep his covenant
  and remember to obey his precepts.
The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
  and his kingdom rules over all.
Praise the Lord, you his angels,
  you mighty ones who do his bidding,
  who obey his word.
Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,
  you his servants who do his will.
Praise the Lord, all his works
  everywhere in his dominion.
Praise the Lord, O my soul.


Midday Prayer

Grant unto us, O God, the fullness of your promises.
Where we have been weak, grant us your strength;
where we have been confused,
grant us your guidance;
where we have been distraught,
grant us your comfort;
where we have been dead, grant us your life.
Apart from you, O Lord, we are nothing,
in and with you we can do all things.


Matthew 22:34-40

Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”


2 Corinthians 4:18

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
