Opening Prayer: Almighty God, You have always called me to Yourself, and always wanted to call me Your child. Help me to understand Your loving embrace, and to walk in the light of it today. Amen.

Read: Psalm 37:1-11

Reflect:  What does it mean to delight yourself in the Lord? How could you wait on the Lord, even with your busy schedule? Are the practices that help you to wait on the Lord? What promises from this Psalm make waiting on the Lord seem worth the wait?

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

Hymn: “O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus”

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free,
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In its fullness over me.
Underneath me all around me,
Is the current of Thy love;
Leading onward, leading homeward
To my glorious rest above.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Spread His praise form shore to shore!
How He loveth, ever loveth,
Changeth never, nevermore;
How He watches o’er His loved ones,
Died to call them all His own;
How for them He intercedeth,
Watcheth, o’er them from the throne.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Love of every love the best!
‘Tis an ocean vast of blessing;
‘Tis a haven sweet of rest.
O the deep, deep love of Jesus-
‘Tis a heaven of heavens to me;
And it lifts me up to glory,
For it lifts me up to Thee.

Closing Prayer: You have been reminded that Jesus Christ is your Lord and that you are God’s servant. You are loved; you are forgiven; you are empowered and now you are sent to live as God’s faithful one. Amen.
