Opening Prayer: Almighty God, help me as I try to understand Your grace, and work to show Your grace to the people around me. Amen.

Read: Psalm 145
Reflect: What is the connection between the Lord’s grace and compassion? What does a gracious and compassionate Lord do for His people? How does this passage help us to relate to other people?

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself.

Hymn: “Jesus I Come”
Out of my bondage, sorrow and night,
Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.
Into Thy freedom, gladness and light,
Jesus, I come to Thee.
Out of my sickness into Thy health,
Out of my want and into Thy wealth,
Out of my sin and into Thyself,
Jesus I come to Thee.

Out of my shameful failure and loss,
Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.
Into the glorious gain of Thy cross,
Jesus, I come to Thee.
Out of earth’s sorrows into Thy balm,
Out of Life’s storms and into Thy calm,
Out of distress to jubilant psalm,
Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of the fear and dread of the tomb,
Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come.
Into the joy and light of Thy home,
Jesus, I come to Thee.
Out of the depths of ruin untold,
Into the peace of Thy sheltering fold,
Ever Thy glorious face to behold,
Jesus I come to Thee.

Closing Prayer: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.” (Philippians 4:23)
