PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION
  • God, source of all light, bu your Word you give light to the soul. Pour out on us the spirit of wisdom and understanding that our hearts and minds may be opened. Amen.
Psalm 9:9-20
9:9 The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
9:10 And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.
9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion. Declare his deeds among the peoples.
9:12 For he who avenges blood is mindful of them; he does not forget the cry of the afflicted.
9:13 Be gracious to me, O LORD. See what I suffer from those who hate me; you are the one who lifts me up from the gates of death,
9:14 so that I may recount all your praises, and, in the gates of daughter Zion, rejoice in your deliverance.
9:15 The nations have sunk in the pit that they made; in the net that they hid has their own foot been caught.
9:16 The LORD has made himself known, he has executed judgment; the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. Higgaion. Selah
9:17 The wicked shall depart to Sheol, all the nations that forget God.
9:18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the poor perish forever.
9:19 Rise up, O LORD! Do not let mortals prevail; let the nations be judged before you.
9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD; let the nations know that they are only human. Selah

ABUNDANT HEALTH
Your Unique Body
You made my whole being; you formed me in my mother's body. Psalm 139:13 (NCV)
Some people thrive on vegan diets, and some do poorly. Some feel weighed down by meat; others are lactose-intolerant or gluten-sensitive. Some people love to run; others feel more energy from rowing or swimming. We are all biochemically, metabolically, physically, and genetically quite different. Each of us has to listen to our own body and honor its uniqueness. Your body will never make a mistake. So learn what real foods and exercises your body thrives on, and make them the foundation for your healthy life.

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING
Holy God of power and might, there are struggles and battles all around us; there is need and pain and struggle; and too often, we feel powerless and inadequate to do anything. Yet, like David, who in faith went to meet Goliath, we have been provided all we need to serve you in the world. May the offering we make at your altar this morning reflect our understanding that we have all we need to live and serve as you have called us. In your holy name, we pray.  Amen
