1-3The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live.
1 Timothy 2:1-3
The Message (MSG)
The greatness of God and the worth of mankind
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honour. You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet: all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
A Psalm of David
Lord Jesus, would You be at the center of my thoughts,
my attitudes and my conversations today.
Help me to remember that I walk by faith and not by sight.
I desire to follow You,
my King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
