Psalm 119:161-168 NIV

Rulers persecute me without cause,
  but my heart trembles at your word.
I rejoice in your promise
  like one who finds great spoil.
I hate and abhor falsehood
  but I love your law.
Seven times a day I praise you
  for your righteous laws.
Great peace have they who love your law,
  and nothing can make them stumble.
I wait for your salvation, O Lord,
  and I follow your commands.
I obey your statutes,
  for I love them greatly.
I obey your precepts and your statutes,
  for all my ways are known to you.


Midday Prayer

Eternal God,
send your Holy Spirit into our hearts,
to direct and rule us according to your will,
to comfort us in all our afflictions,
to defend us from all error,
and to lead us into all truth;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Luke 24:1-12 NIV

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” Then they remembered his words.

When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles. But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense. Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.
