Sanctifying the Day
A Morning Call to Worship
“Our God is the God who formed the inward parts,
those parts that doctors study for a lifetime,
he designed and shaped and knitted together all of them,
while we resided in our mother’s wombs.
Nothing in our frame was hidden from Him
when He was shaping us in secret,
intricately weaving us for His glory.
So let us rise this day and give Him praise
for we are fearfully and wonderfully made.
Let us give Him praise.
Let us give Him thanks.
And let us serve the King of kings,
and all the others around us
who just like us
were made in His image and likeness.”
cf. Psalm 139:13-16; Genesis 1:27
A Mid-Day Call to Revival
1 O Lord, I call upon you; hasten to me!
Give ear to my voice when I call to you!
2 Let my prayer be counted as incense before you,
and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!
3 Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth;
keep watch over the door of my lips!
4 Do not let my heart incline to any evil,
to busy myself with wicked deeds
in company with men who work iniquity,
and let me not eat of their delicacies!
5 Let a righteous man strike me—it is a kindness;
let him rebuke me—it is oil for my head;
let my head not refuse it.
Yet my prayer is continually against their evil deeds.
“O God, hear David’s prayer from our mouths.
Please Lord, hear our cry
Hasten to us.
Hasten to us.
And revive us.”
cf. Psalm 141:1-7
An Evening Benediction
“We go to our rest.
Bowing our spirits as we do,
knowing, rejocing, reveling in the knowledge
that You, our thrice holy God,
have watched over us as we walked this day.
Now, give us rest.
And give us You again in the morning,
(we don’t want to take a step without You),
so give us Yourself with the new mercies
You have prepared for us.”
cf. Lamentations 3:22-23
Encourage a friend. Pass it on.
