Daily Bread

From Today's Office
Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time on and forevermore. From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the LORD is to be praised.
Psalm 113:2-3
Prayer is the manifest blossom of meekness. Prayer is the fruit of grateful joy. Prayer fends off despondency. This is why possessions are a burden, and why you must take up your cross, so you can pray at long last without distraction. —Scott Cairns, Love’s Immensity, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day

Lord, sometimes I feel entitled and become so enamored of myself that I forget you came as a servant, and bid us to do the same. Forgive me when I set my sights on my own selfish ends. Help me to have a servant’s heart today.  Amen
