Another Word from Morning Prayer


"As for me, I exalt my God,
and my spirit rejoices in the King of Heaven."

C.S. Lewis said, "Joy is the serious business of Heaven." Last night at Bible Study I jokingly said, "Everything comes back to the book of Phillippians." They will know we are Christians by our love, but they will know our true love by our joy. Joy is the light that shines forth and invites the world to the banquet of the lamb. Joy is the mainstay of life. A life without joy is a life not lived.

A Word from Morning Prayer


I read these words every four weeks or so on a Tuesday, perhaps more often than that. But today the meaning dawned upon me in a new way.

"King of glory, Lord of power and might, cleanse our hearts from all sin, preserve the innocence of our hands, and keep our minds from vanity, so that we may deserve your blessing in your holy place."

May it be so for all of us. In other words. Amen.
