Prayer: Grant, Almighty God, since you have reconciled us to yourself by the precious blood of your Son, that we may not be our own, but devoted to you in perfect obedience, may we consecrate ourselves entirely to you. May we offer our bodies and souls in sacrifice, and may we be prepared to suffer a hundred deaths [rather] than to turn from your true and sincere worship. Grant us, especially, to exercise ourselves in prayer, to fly to you every moment and to commit ourselves to your fatherly care, that your Spirit may govern us to the end. Defend and sustain us, until we are collected into that heavenly kingdom your only begotten Son has prepared for us by his blood. Amen (Lifting Up Our Hearts, p. 255).

Scripture Meditation: 1 Thess. 5:17; Rom. 12:1-2
