PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION

Open our eyes, our ears, and our hearts to perceive the life of generosity to which you’ve called us and for which you created us. We pray this in the name of Jesus, the Christ, who gave all there was to give for us. AMEN.
 

Psalm 19:7-14

19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the decrees of the LORD are sure, making wise the simple;
19:8 the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is clear, enlightening the eyes;
19:9 the fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever; the ordinances of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey, and drippings of the honeycomb.
19:11 Moreover by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
19:12 But who can detect their errors? Clear me from hidden faults.
19:13 Keep back your servant also from the insolent; do not let them have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.
19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

ABUNDANT HEALTH

Time to Play
The Lord is my strength and my shield …. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. Psalm 28:7 (NIV)
 
When we were kids, we called it play, and we loved every minute of it. Today, for many, we call it exercise and count every minute of it, longing for it to be over. Why not integrate motion with devotion and bring back the fun and joy to your fitness and life?
Here’s a good place to start: Move toward joy. If you think of exercise as drudgery, as an ought to in your life, your motivation will disappear. If you direct your energies wisely and do something you enjoy, something you get to do, you’ll find that motivation comes naturally.

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING

Gracious God, You desire fruitfulness from us — as you do from all creation. You have nourished us, like trees planted by streams of water, not simply to store up blessings for ourselves, but to bear fruit that will be a blessing to many. Amen.
