PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION

We give thanks, almighty God, that you have granted us the teaching of Jesus Christ. Strengthen our faith through your Word, increase our love for one another, and send us forth into the world in courage and peace, rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit. AMEN.

Psalm 125

125:1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
125:2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people, from this time on and forevermore.
125:3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, so that the righteous might not stretch out their hands to do wrong.
125:4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts.
125:5 But those who turn aside to their own crooked ways the LORD will lead away with evildoers. Peace be upon Israel!

ABUNDANT HEALTH

Exercise You Will Love
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)

Despite all the research surrounding the benefits of regular exercise, the only one that will make a difference is the program you do consistently. Once you find movement you enjoy, doing that type of exercise (or play) will help you look and feel younger, ramp up a sluggish metabolism, reduce and manage your weight, boost your energy, enhance creativity and productivity, increase cardiovascular endurance, improve muscular tone and strength, enhance sleep, reverse heart disease and high blood pressure and diabetes, reduce stress, and bring joy and youthfulness back to your life.
—Exercise Physiologist Sean Foy

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING

You, Lord, created the earth and the oceans, shaped with your hands and your breath; you raised up the mountains and made the valleys low. As we offer our gifts this morning, may they mark our resolve to be more faithful stewards of the resources of this precious planet. We pray in the name of Christ, our example and our healer. Amen.
