PRAYER

Luther's Morning Prayer

I thank You, my Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ your dear Son

That you have kept me this night from all harm and danger

And I pray that you would keep me this day also from sin and every evil

That all my doings in life may please You

For into Your hands I commit myself - my body and soul and all things

Let Your Holy Angel be with me that the evil foe may have no power over me

Amen

SCRIPTURE

This Week's Memory Verse - Psalm 95:1-4

"Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.

For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods.

In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him."


I always learn scripture better when I can put music to it. If that sounds like you, too, you can use this music video to help you remember this verse about our praise and worship to our great God.

Sing For Joy (Psalm 95:1-4)

CLOSING PRAYER

Now, before I run to play, let me not forget to pray

To God who kept me through the night and woke me with the morning light

Help me, Lord, to love Thee more than I have ever loved before

In my work and in my play, be Thou with me through the day

Amen
