Morning Prayer

Almighty and eternal God, merciful Father, You gave Your Son for our sins, and raised him up again for our righteousness.
 
Through him You have overcome death and have opened up for us the way to eternal life. Through Your Holy Spirit, grant that we may rely on this in true faith, that our bodies also will arise with Christ to eternal life, and that by remembering this comfort we may endure all kinds of sorrow in this life with patience through the power of the resurrection of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who with You and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, forever and ever.
 
Amen.

Let us lie in wait for the virtuous man and condemn him to a shameful death

As the number of disciples continued to grow, the Hellenists complained against the Hebrews because their widows were being neglected in the daily distribution.
So the Twelve called together the community of the disciples and said, “It is not right for us to neglect the word of God to serve at table. Brothers, select from among you seven reputable men, filled with the Spirit and wisdom, whom we shall appoint to this task, whereas we shall devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” The proposal was acceptable to the whole community, so they chose Stephen, a man filled with faith and the Holy Spirit, also Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicholas of Antioch, a convert to Judaism.
They presented these men to the Apostles who prayed and laid hands on them. The word of God continued to spread, and the number of the disciples in Jerusalem increased greatly; even a large group of priests were becoming obedient to the faith.

Gospel: John 6:16-21
They would have arrested him, but his time had not yet come

When it was evening, the disciples of Jesus went down to the sea, embarked in a boat, and went across the sea to Capernaum.
It had already grown dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. The sea was stirred up because a strong wind was blowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they began to be afraid. But he said to them, “It is I. Do not be afraid.” They wanted to take him into the boat, but the boat immediately arrived at the shore to which they were heading.

Evening Prayer

Heavenly father, thank you for the great victory over evil that your cross represents.
Most merciful Lord, thank you that the cross is the ultimate weapon against my enemies, and that no evil force, treachery, deceit, or malice that would attack this holy temple will ever succeed.
 
Cover my life with the blood of Jesus, oh Lord, and protect me from any evil plot that would seek to rob my of the peace of Christ.
May my savior’s suffering be a crushing blow against the enemy in every single area of my life, and I thank you and praise you, heavenly father, for IT IS FINISHED! In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen
