FAMILIAR SCRIPTURES AND PRAYERS

 

 


 

Father, I bow in Your presence and acknowledge You as the ruler of the universe and the captor of my heart.  I have no crown of gold to cast at Your feet, but I do more – I cast my heart.  I am yours and You are mine forever.  Thank you, My Father.  Amen

 

Statement of Faith – the Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is , seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made.  For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became truly human.  For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.  On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.  He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.  We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church.  We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.  We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.  Amen.

 

23rd Psalm

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.  He maketh me lie down in green pastures, he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul.  He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for  His name’ sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;  Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.
