Jeremiah 29:1, 4-7
2 Timothy 2:8-15
*a note about prostration in prayer: More familiar now among Muslims
prostration with face to the ground was one of the two postures of
prayer mentioned in many early texts of the church. The other was
standing in orans with hands uplifted. Have you ever prostrated yourself
before God in prayer? Is there a place in your prayer life where you would?
Lord, we pray that your grace may always precede and follow us, that we may continually be given to good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
