Psalm 27:1-6 NIV

The Lord is my light and my salvation-
  whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life-
  of whom shall I be afraid?
When evil men advance against me
  to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me,
  they will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
  my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
  even then will I be confident.

One thing I ask of the Lord,
  this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
  all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
  and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
  he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle
  and set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be exalted
  above the enemies who surround me;
at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy;
  I will sing and make music to the Lord.


Midday Prayer

Eternal God,
you are the power behind all things:
behind the energy of the storm,
behind the heat of a million suns.

Eternal God,
you are the power behind all minds:
behind the ability to think and reason,
behind all understanding of the truth.

Eternal God,
you are the power behind the cross of Christ:
behind the weakness, the torture and the death,
behind unconquerable love.

Eternal God,
we worship and adore you.


John 12:12-13 NIV

The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Blessed is the King of Israel!”


Ephesians 1:3 NIV

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
