1st Prayer: January 24,2011

Do not dispatch me, merciful Lord, before my time.

Do not let me depart this life empty-handed, before my journey is accomplished.

Do not offer me the cup of bitterness in my time of thirst.

Do not block me, compassionate Lord, from the

path of doing good,

and do not permit the nightfall of death to overtake me

like a band of thieves in a sudden ambush.

May the feverish heat of the sun at an

unexpected moment

not cut off and dry up my roots forever.

And may the lunacy of the moon, arriving in secret,

not cause harm.

May rest not bring death

and slumber not lead to slaughter.

May sleep not destroy me

and may drowsiness not corrupt me.

May my death not strike me at an

inappropriate moment.

And may the release of my spirit upward not

be cast down.

Scriptural Readings:
Proverbs 14:1-6.
Proverbs 14:1-6 (King James Version)

Proverbs 14

1Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.

2He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.

3In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.

4Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: but much increase is by the strength of the ox.

5A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.

6A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth

Zechariah 8:4-5.
Zechariah 8:4-5 (King James Version)

4Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age.

5And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof.

Isaiah 60:8-9.
Isaiah 60:8-9 (King James Version)

8Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?

9Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.

Hebrews 2:14-18.
Hebrews 2:14-18 (King James Version)

14Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

15And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

16For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

17Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

18For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Luke 9:44-48

Luke 9:44-48 (King James Version)

44Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men.

45But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.

46Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.

47And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him,

48And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.
