From Today's Office
Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
Psalm 45:6
In returning, we admit that we are not enough for ourselves by ourselves. We bend the knee and say “My Lord and my God.”

—Emilie Griffin, Small Surrenders
Prayer of the Day for Eucharist

Dear Lord Jesus, even Herod Antipas asked about you, “Who is this?” He desired to see you, but why? Then I ask myself, “Who are you to me, Jesus? Why do I desire to see you in my life? Help me to answer honestly, that I may turn from any mixed motives and come to know you as you truly are, the Son of the Living God and my personal Savior. Amen.
