Week One
Tuesday Morning

Greeting and Doxology

God will bless them, their Savior will bring justice.

God owns this planet and all its riches.
The earth and every creature belong to God.

God set the land on top of the seas
and anchored it in the deep.

Who is fit to climb God’s mountain
and stand in his holy place?

Whoever has integrity:
not chasing shadows, not living lies.

God will bless them,
their savior will bring justice.
These people long to see the Lord,
they seek the face of Jacob’s God.

Stretch toward heaven, you gates,
open high and wide.
Let the glorious sovereign enter.

Who is this splendid ruler?
The Lord of power and might,
the conqueror of chaos.

Stretch toward heaven, you gates,
open high and wide.
Let the glorious sovereign enter.

Who is this splendid ruler?
The Lord of heaven’s might, this splendid ruler is God.

READING Romans 13:11b – 14
It is now the moment for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we became believers; the night is far gone, the day is near. Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light; let us live honorably as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy. Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provisions for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

Let us follow the example of Jesus who testified on all occasions a tender love for the poor.

Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
who shepherds the people and
sets them free.

God raises from David’s house
a child with
power to save.
Through the holy prophets
God promised in
ages past
to save us from enemy hands,
from the grip of
all who hate us.

The Lord favored our ancestors
recalling the
sacred covenant,
the pledge to our an
cestor Abraham,
to free us
from our enemies,
so we might worship without fear
and be holy and just
all our days.

And you child, will be called
Prophet of
the Most High,
for you will come to prepare
a pathway
for the Lord
by teaching the peo
ple salvation
through forgiveness
of their sin.

Out of God’s
deepest mercy
a dawn will come
from on high,
light for those sha
dowed by death,
a guide for our feet on the
way to peace.

Loving God, maker of the dawn, we ask for your protection this day. You are gentle and kind, merciful to those in need:
You desire freedom for the oppressed:
You bring healing to the wounded:
You bring freedom to the captive:
You comfort those who mourn:
You bring peace to those in conflict:


God of justice and mercy, you are our saving God. Come with your power to save, and free those held captive by oppression. Use us as your instruments of mercy and peace. Give us the courage to challenge all that enslaves the human spirit. This we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

May God’s blessing be upon us. Amen
May God’s light lead us in the way of Righteousness. Amen.
May our lives be patterned on Christ Jesus. Amen.
