Heavenly Father, 

Help us to draw close to You every day, to ask for Your wisdom guidance, to rest in Your love, and to follow Your Way.

In the name Jesus our Brother, Amen.


The Lord’s Prayer  (Click link to listen then close song page to return)

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 debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

Loving Father,

We ask for Your wisdom, because we do not always know the good You want for us. 

We ask for Your forgiveness, because we do not always do the good You want for us. 

Lead us in the paths of righteousness, for Your Name’s sake. 

We thank you that You are faithful and just and forgive us from all unrighteousness. 

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Matthew 5:1-12

The Beatitudes

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. 2 Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

5 “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.

8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 


12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
