As we wrap up the liturgical year, we will wind down on this weekly post of daily Bible reading material with prayers. The last of these Devotions@Home posts will be on November 23rd. Beginning November 26th, look for a daily Advent Calendar of Prayer on our Facebook page every evening at 7pm where we will read scripture, sing, and pray with words and sounds of the season.
Here is the second to last edition of Devotions@Home a daily selection of readings for personal study which respond to the previous Sunday and lead us to the coming Sunday. Feel free to substitute in your own prayers (the Lord’s Prayer is an especially attractive option). Blessings to you and your family.
Blessed Lord God, you have caused the holy scriptures to be written for the nourishment of your people. Grant that I/we may hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that, comforted by your promises, we may embrace and forever hold fast to the hope of eternal life, which you have given us in Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
O God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
