Psalm 25:1-7 NIV

To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul;
  in you I trust, O my God.
Do not let me be put to shame,
  nor let my enemies triumph over me.
No one whose hope is in you
  will ever be put to shame,
but they will be put to shame
  who are treacherous without excuse.

Show me your ways, O Lord,
  teach me your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me,
  for you are God my Savior,
  and my hope is in you all day long.
Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love,
  for they are from of old.
Remember not the sins of my youth
  and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
  for you are good, O Lord.


Midday Prayer

Loving God,
you have so made us that we cannot live by bread alone,
but by every word that proceeds from your mouth.

Give us a hunger for your Word,
and in that food satisfy our daily need;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


John 10:11-18 NIV

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.

“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me- just as the Father knows me and I know the Father-and I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life-only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
