Psalm 15 NIV

Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
  Who may live on your holy hill?

He whose walk is blameless
  and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart
  and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbor no wrong
  and casts no slur on his fellowman,
who despises a vile man
  but honors those who fear the Lord,
who keeps his oath
  even when it hurts,
who lends his money without usury
  and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things
  will never be shaken.


Midday Prayer

God of grace,
you have given us minds to know you,
hearts to love you,
and voices to sing your praise.

Fill us with your Spirit,
that we may celebrate your glory
and worship you in spirit and in truth;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


John 3:1-8 NIV

Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”

“How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!”

Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”


Romans 8:28 NIV

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
