Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember that we are in the presence of God.  Let us offer our special intentions as we continue to pray for our fellow classmate Janna Babin. 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Luke 1:26-28   God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."

Thoughts on today's verse:   Wow! Such a familiar sentence packed with emotion. "The Lord is with you."

Our request, "Be with us Lord, we cannot live without you. We cannot bear to take one step alone."  Father, we need your abiding presence to face the challenges of life.  We are thankful to greet each day knowing that we will not face it alone.   Through Jesus we pray.

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy 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; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember that we are in the presence of God.  Let us offer our special intentions as we continue to pray for our fellow classmate Janna Babin. 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 2:4-6   When King Herod had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born. "In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written: 'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means the least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.'"

Thoughts on today's verse:  You, O Lord, are God Almighty, the holy and majestic Creator. Yet you became the least so we can share in your glory. Please help us to never look down on someone else because they look like the least. We know, Father, that as we serve and love them, we are serving and loving you.
  Through Jesus we pray.

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy 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; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Galatians 4:4-5   When the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.

Thoughts on today's verse:  God waited until history reached his appointed time and sent Jesus so we could be his children -- not pretend children, but real children, with full rights.  While I know that I will never be a perfect child, I rest today in the confidence that I am your child and that you claim me. Through Jesus we pray.

Isaiah 7:14   The Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Emmanuel.

Thoughts on today's verse:  God is interested in us personally. So much so that he personally gives us this sign. We know what that sign was - Jesus coming to live as God with us. His presence is God's presence. His life is God's sign.   Holy and Almighty Lord, we thank you for coming to live among us in Jesus.   We thank you and praise you for your sacrifice and pain. We know this sign cost you greatly so please let our praise in prayer, song, thought and life reflect our thanks to you, Through Jesus we pray.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 18:15   The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like [Moses] from among your own brothers. You must listen to him.

Thoughts on today's verse:  Jesus is that prophet like Moses. He has come and taught us God's truth.  He has taught us with his example, through the deeds he has done. He is teaching us through his abiding presence in us and through the Spirit he has given us. But he teaches us most effectively when we put into practice what he has said.

Lord, Help us not only hear his voice, but listen to his message and life and put it into practice today. Gently correct and lead us in the way of obedience so that we may more perfectly glorify you with the worship of our daily life. Through Jesus we pray.

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy 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; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Morning Offering and Special Intentions:
Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember that we are in the presence of God.  Let us offer our special intentions as we continue to pray for our fellow classmate Janna Babin. 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
John 10:14-15   [Jesus said,] "I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me - just as the Father knows me and I know the Father - and I lay down my life for the sheep."

Thoughts on today's verse:  The goal of our walk with Jesus is to come to know him as our shepherd just as intimately as he knows the Father. A key thing for us to remember: In a world where so many people want to attract our attention and are willing to give us advice, we can refuse their voice. We listen to Jesus because he has shown his love for us by laying down his life for us. He is the Good Shepherd.

Holy Father, you have shown your love by sending your Son to be my Shepherd.  Help me hear his voice through your Word. Help me hear his voice through the wise counsel of spiritual friends. Father, I want to follow your Son as my Shepherd and Lord because I know he, like you, is good!  Through Jesus we pray…

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy 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; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember that we are in the presence of God.  Let us offer our special intentions as we continue to pray for our fellow classmate Janna Babin. 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
John 8:12   When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

Thoughts on today's verse:  To follow Jesus means to bring him our heart and let him cast everything from the darkness that plagues us on the inside so we don't have to be afraid of the darkness on the outside. In this way, Jesus gives us light, but it is a light that does more than fill a dark room. This is a light that illumines the heart.

Holy God who lives in glorious and irrepressible light, I praise you for sending Jesus to cast away the dark fears that so easily envelope me. I pray for strength and courage to not only live in the light, but show others their way to the light. In Jesus name I pray. Amen. Through Jesus we pray…

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come, Thy 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; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
