“After this manner pray ye:

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” Mathew 6 v9-13 AKJV

Lord Jesus, this day is yours and you are our way, our one way to the father and we thank you. We thank you, our father for all that is held in his balance, in your time, we give thanks. Our family, we thank you. Amen

“Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom. A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself. When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.

The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook. It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.” Proverbs 18 v1-5

Lord, God, we thank you for your word. Jesus, we love you and give you praise this day. Lord, this day is yours. Amen

“When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus’ disciple unto : He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulcher, and departed. And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulcher.

Now the next day, that followed the day of preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate, Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive,

After three days I will rise again.” Mathew 27 v57-62 AKJV

Our Lord is risen. We thank you Lord for this day as you bear witness to others through life that continues on in the world today. Victory is in you Lord, We thank you for this day, and for every day. Lord, this day is yours. Amen.

For my names sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off. Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen the in the furnace of affliction. For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another. Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.” Isaiah 48 v9-12

Dear Lord, as I hear your word, let us hear your word. Your mercy is good to us. We give thanks to you, Lord. We thank you, Lord. As the external forces of deceit and deception work to set us on the path of destruction, your truths keep us free and we thank you. We thank you, dear Lord Jesus. Amen

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1 v16, 17 AKJV

It is not a self made proclamation, nor do we find right by connecting to a group or movement. Right is found in Christ Jesus, not in our ways but in God’s ways through his son. That will live forever more.

Lord, as this day unfolds let us seek your right by our faith in trusting you and our actions in following what we know is right. Love is knowing that we stand where we stand for the purposes of your love for all others, even in the area’s where many seek to dilute right with the deception of wrong-as written in you word. What matters? Everything. Our victory is in you.

Lord, this day is yours. Amen
