Friday, September 19. What does the news bring today? Pray for a story that speaks particularly to you.
Words from The Word: Only, live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that, whether I come and see you or am absent and hear about you, I will know that you are standing firm in one spirit, striving side by side with one mind for the faith of the gospel.
-Philippians 1:27 (NRSV)
Audio Lectio: Pray the scripture with us using a guided meditation on Matthew 20:8-16. “The last will be first, and the first will be last.”
Spiritual Tools: The spiritual practice for this week is consideration of the article, Night Prayer. End your day with this liturgy.
