Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life.

  • Morning Psalms 84; 148
  • First Reading Isaiah 55:1-13
  • Second Reading Galatians 5:16-24
  • Gospel Reading Mark 9:2-13
  • Evening Psalms 25; 40

    God our creator, earth has many languages, but your gospel proclaims your love to all nations in one heavenly tongue. Make us messengers of the good news that, through the power of your Spirit, all the world may unite in one song of praise. Renew us by your Holy Spirit that we may follow your commands and proclaim your reign of love; that, clinging in love to your will for us, we may walk the path of discipleship as followers of your Son. Merciful God, you sent Jesus to heal broken lives. Make the weak strong, the sick healthy, the broken whole. Then all shall be renewed in vigor to point to the risen Christ, who conquered death that we might live eternally. Almighty God, we commend to your goodness all who are near and dear to us, wherever they may be today. Watch over them; provide for them; bless them in body and soul; at last bring them and us into the perfect and eternal joy of heaven. (Add your prayers.) Amen.

    May the God of peace make you holy in every way, and keep your whole being, spirit, soul, and body, free from every fault at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    (Opening sentences, prayers, and blessings are from the Book of Common Worship. Readings are from the daily lectionary in Daily Prayer. Both are published by Westminster/John Knox Press.)
