PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION 

Light of God, illumine the path that leads us to healing, hope and salvation. 
Glory of God, fill this sanctuary and expose the darkness that stalks our souls. 
Light of God, shine with such brightness that we marvel in awe. 
Glory of God, fill each temple of the Holy Spirit present today. 
Light of God, Glory of God, we welcome you in this place. AMEN

Psalm 72:1-7, 10-14

72:1 Give the king your justice, O God, and your righteousness to a king's son.
72:2 May he judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice.
72:3 May the mountains yield prosperity for the people, and the hills, in righteousness.
72:4 May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the needy, and crush the oppressor.
72:5 May he live while the sun endures, and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
72:6 May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass, like showers that water the earth.
72:7 In his days may righteousness flourish and peace abound, until the moon is no more.
72:10 May the kings of Tarshish and of the isles render him tribute, may the kings of Sheba and Seba bring gifts.
72:11 May all kings fall down before him, all nations give him service.
72:12 For he delivers the needy when they call, the poor and those who have no helper.
72:13 He has pity on the weak and the needy, and saves the lives of the needy.
72:14 From oppression and violence he redeems their life; and precious is their blood in his sight.

DAILY READING


ABUNDANT HEALTH

Faith-Based Health

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, 
eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Romans 12:1 (The Message)

To reach optimum health, you must pay attention to the spiritual dimensions of your life. 
You have a body, but you are far more than just a body. Every area of your life affects every 
other area. For instance, it’s hard to be spiritually strong and mentally alert when you are emotionally 
stressed or physically fatigued. If you are spiritually and emotionally weak or ill, 
your body cannot perform at its peak. So your health starts with your relationship 
to God—the Creator who designed you, knows best how your body was made to operate, 
and has the power to help you make the changes that you want to see.
—Pastor Rick Warren

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING

Everlasting God, you love all people, especially those who are poor and vulnerable. 
You have demonstrated your great compassion in Scripture and history. 
Thank you for calling us to actively show compassion and uphold justice as members of the church 
of Jesus Christ. We are grateful for opportunities to extend your love through the ministries 
of our congregation. Use our gifts and offerings to help our neighbors who are in need 
of tangible goods and your Spirit’s peace. We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
