PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION

Blessed is our God, and blessed are God’s gifts,
that grace us with forgiveness, hope and peace.
Lord, you have come to dwell within us.
Free our thinking to build your temple within our hearts. AMEN.
 

Psalm 90

A prayer of Moses the man of God.
1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
2 Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
3 You turn people back to dust, saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”
4 A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
5 Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death—they are like the new grass of the morning:
6 In the morning it springs up new, but by evening it is dry and withered.
7 We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation.
8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence.
9 All our days pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan.
10 Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11 If only we knew the power of your anger! Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.
12 Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
13 Relent, Lord! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants.
14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble.
16 May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children.
17 May the favor[a] of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands.

ABUNDANT HEALTH

Sitting Disease
Lord, you have examined me and know all about me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know my thoughts before I think them. Psalm 139:1-2 (NCV)
  
Believe it or not, the average American employee will sit anywhere from 7.7 to 15 hours a day without moving. Researchers are now beginning to unravel the catastrophic impact that sitting for long periods of time can cause to human health. Experts have coined the phrase “sitting disease” to describe it.
This disease is easy to prevent. People who move just a little bit—even fidgeting or getting up from their desks on a frequent basis to get a cup of coffee, or taking a flight of stairs—significantly improve their health.
—Exercise Physiologist Sean Foy
  
PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING
God of Wisdom and Grace, you have given to us generously – a Savior, a Messiah, Jesus born in Bethlehem. We bring our tithes and offerings to you for the building of your kingdom here on earth, that your children might always find room—room in our hearts and in our homes. In the Savior’s name, we pray. Amen.
