3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
A Prayer …
Lord God, I was lost, hopeless, and helpless. I enjoyed my sin and I was your enemy. In your great love, grace, and mercy you rescued me; you saved me. I could never and can never save myself; no one can, no one will. I was poor in my flesh but I have become rich in Your Spirit. This world will never, can never possess what I truly need. I need you; every moment of every day. May I remain poor in the things of this world and seek only those things that you provide. They are all that I need. True satisfaction, true happiness is found in Jesus Christ. I await that Holy Rest for those of us that place their full trust and confidence in Jesus, the Messiah, our Lord and our God. Amen and Amen.
