Thursday Morning

Open my lips, O Lord,

And my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,

And renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence

And take not your Holy Spirit from me.

Give me the joy of your saving help again

And sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.


Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:

As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.


Scripture Reading: Psalm 105:1-22


Take a moment in silence to reflect on the Scripture reading and the following question for today:


What is the next step of commitment and action for you to join what God is doing in the world?


Prayers for Others Today: Take some time to pray out loud on behalf of others. If in a group, you may be led to share your prayer requests in order to pray for one another.


Our Father,

Who is in heaven

Hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come, your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread

And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, 

Forever and ever. Amen.


Almighty and most merciful God, grant that by the indwelling of your Holy Spirit we may be enlightened and strengthened for your service; that all may come to know the glory of your kingdom as we live to show your love. We pray all this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thursday Evening

O gracious Light,

Pure brightness of the ever living Father in heaven,

O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!


Now as we come to the setting of the sun,

And our eyes behold the evening light,

We sing your praises O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


You are worthy at all times to be praised by all voices,

O Son of God, O Giver of life,

And to be glorified through all the worlds.
