The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit;
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven
And sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit;
The holy catholic church; *
The communion of saints;
The forgiveness of sins;
The resurrection of the body;
And the life everlasting.


* Note: "catholic church" here means the entire body of
believers in Christ, not just one particular church.

Blessings to you in Jesus Christ our Lord,

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
January 15, 1929 - April 4, 1968
Martin Luther King Tribute And Prayer
January 15th is Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday. And April 4th
is the anniversary of his death, by assassination. These two dates are
worthy of remembrance by all people who love freedom and justice. And now
we have the Martin Luther King Day holiday -- the third Monday in January
-- in honor of his life.
One of my co-workers (from another country) asked me this question: "What
did Martin Luther King actually do to deserve a holiday in his name?"

My reply was this:

"Martin Luther King was the unquestioned leader of the American Civil
Rights movement during our period of transition from racial segregation to
integration. As a Christian minister, he taught non-violence, and his
leadership steered us safely through the changes without the kind of
catastrophic violence we might have had otherwise. He was willing to risk
his life for this cause, and his life was taken because of it. He is a
true hero to everyone who loves justice."

I didn't appreciate him at the time, during his ministry. I was a
know-it-all young white man from a segregated high school in Florida, and
I thought he was a dangerous trouble-maker and probably a Communist. Only
later did I realize how very important he had been, and how much we all
owed to him for leading us safely through those perilous times, which
could have turned into a disaster, but did not. And only recently have I
come to discern the Holy Spirit shining within him, leading him every step
of his way, even unto death.

So now I offer this prayer for him:

A Prayer For Martin Luther King

Dear Lord, I pray for Martin Luther King,
That You will bless his soul forevermore,
And keep him always close unto Yourself.

As You did put Your Spirit into Him,
I pray You put Your Spirit into us,
That we, like Martin, might be filled with love,
And we, like Martin, might have strength to act.

In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

Reading Of The Scriptures
1 Corinthians 13:1-13 - The Supreme Importance Of Love
Text is from the King James Clarified New Testament (KJCNT), which is in

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 (KJCNT)
13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have
not love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all
mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I
could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing.

13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I
give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profits me nothing.

13:4 Love suffers long, and is kind; love envies not; love vaunts not
itself, is not puffed up,

13:5 Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily
provoked, thinks no evil;

13:6 Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 13:7 Bears
all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

13:8 Love never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall
fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be
knowledge, it shall vanish away.

13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in
part shall be done away.

13:11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child,
I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish

13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:
now I know in part; but then shall I know just as also I am known.

13:13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest
of these is love.


May the Lord bless this presentation of His holy word.

I pray the Lord that He will lead your path
Away from the temptations all around.
I pray that when temptation lingers near,
The Lord will lead you not into its reach.
But if temptation grabs you as you pass,
I pray the Lord that you will struggle free.
In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.

Blessings to you in Jesus Christ our Lord.
