In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.


In the morning, O Lord, You hear my voice;

in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for You and watch.

My mouth is filled with Your praise,

and with Your glory all the day.

O Lord, open my lips,

and my mouth will declare Your praise.

Psalm 118:10-18

10      All nations surrounded me;

in the name of the Lord I cut them off!

    11      They surrounded me, surrounded me on every side;

in the name of the Lord I cut them off!

    12      They surrounded me like bees;

they went out like a fire among thorns;

in the name of the Lord I cut them off!

    13      I was pushed hard, so that I was falling,

but the Lord helped me.

    14      The Lord is my strength and my song;

he has become my salvation.

    15      Glad songs of salvation

are in the tents of the righteous:

            “The right hand of the Lord does valiantly,

    16      the right hand of the Lord exalts,

the right hand of the Lord does valiantly!”

    17      I shall not die, but I shall live,

and recount the deeds of the Lord.

    18      The Lord has disciplined me severely,

but he has not given me over to death.

John 16:5-18

But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

Lord’s Prayer

Daily Prayer

Lord, You are my strength and my song; You has become my salvation through the life, death and resurrection of Your Son, my Savior Jesus Christ. He promised that when the Holy Spirit comes He would lead us into all truth which are now kept for us in Your Word. Empower Your church throughout the world that they would proclaim Your truth and shine as the light of the Gospel in this sin-darkened world. I ask this in Jesus’ Name, amen.

Luther’s Morning prayer

I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and I pray that You would keep me this day also from sin and every evil, that all my doings and life may please You. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen.
