Psalm 86:1-7

Hear, O Lord, and answer me,
  for I am poor and needy.
Guard my life, for I am devoted to you.
  You are my God; save your servant
  who trusts in you.
Have mercy on me, O Lord,
  for I call to you all day long.
Bring joy to your servant,
  for to you, O Lord,
  I lift up my soul.
You are forgiving and good, O Lord,
  abounding in love to all who call to you.
Hear my prayer, O Lord;
  listen to my cry for mercy.
In the day of my trouble I will call to you,
  for you will answer me.


Midday Prayer

Eternal God,
you satisfy our hunger
by feeding us with the bread of life,
and you quench our thirst for righteousness
by your mighty acts.
Nourish us always by your Spirit,
that we may grow into the stature of Jesus Christ.


Matthew 6:1-4

“Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

“So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”


2 Corinthians 4:16

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
