Prayer of the Day and Readings

For the week of Sept. 13-19, 2021

You may use this resource (content also below) for your home devotional life. Scripture readings for each day flow from the Sunday readings, and prepare us for the following Sunday. You may use the Prayer of the Day as a daily centering prayer.

Prayer of the Day

O God, our teacher and guide, you draw us to yourself and welcome us as beloved children. Help us to lay aside all envy and selfish ambition, that we may walk in your ways of wisdom and understanding as servants of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
