En prière (In Prayer)                                     Gabriel Faurè

If the voice of a child can ascend to Thy throne and implore Thee, Hear the prayer of Thy Son, on His knees all alone, here before Thee.  If Thou hast chosen me to teach Thy laws aright to each nation, I shall serve Thee with joy, Almighty God of Light, of creation.  Place the seal of Thy truth on all that I may say, and be near me, That those now lost in doubt may humbly find the way to revere Thee.  Do Thou forsake me not; Thy sweet mercy’s fair glow I would borrow, To still all evil hearts, to console all their woe and their sorrow.  Reveal Thyself to me, Thou aid in pain and loss; I obey Thee;  For Thee will I endure, and on Calvary cross let them slay me.



SCRIPTURE READING #1 July 15                                 Amber Gaylord   

Ephesians 1:3-14                                                                          N.T. p.192
Blessed be the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, just as God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before God in love. The Lord destined us for adoption as children through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of God’s will, to the praise of the glorious grace freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of the grace that God lavished on us. With all wisdom and insight God has made known to us the mystery of God’s will, according to God’s good pleasure set forth in Christ, as a plan for the fullness of time, to gather up all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. In Christ we have also obtained an inheritance, having been destined according to the purpose of God who accomplishes all things according to God’s counsel and will, so that we, who were the first to set our hope on Christ, might live for the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you had heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and had believed in him, were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit; this is the pledge of our inheritance toward redemption as God’s own people, to the praise of his glory. 

SCRIPTURE READING #2 for July 15                            Carl Northrup

2 Samuel 6:1-5, 12b-19                                                           The Message


David mustered the pick of the troops of Israel—thirty divisions of them. Together with his soldiers, David headed for Baalah to recover the Ark of God’s Covenant, which was called by the Name God-of-the-Angel-Armies, who was enthroned over the pair of angels on the Chest.They placed the Ark of God on a brand-new oxcart and removed it from Abinadab’s house on the hill. Uzzah and Ahio, Abinadab’s sons, were driving the new cart loaded with the Chest of God, Ahio in the lead and Uzzah alongside the Chest. David and the whole company of Israel were in the parade, singing at the top of their lungs and playing mandolins, harps, tambourines, castanets, and cymbals. It was reported to King David that God had prospered Obed-Edom and his entire household because of the Ark of God. So David thought, “I’ll get that blessing for myself,” and went and brought up the Ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David, celebrating extravagantly all the way, with frequent sacrifices of choice bulls. David, ceremonially dressed in priest’s linen, danced with great abandon before God. The whole country was with him as he accompanied the Ark of God with shouts and trumpet blasts. But as the Ark of God came into the City of David, Michal, Saul’s daughter, happened to be looking out a window. When she saw King David leaping and dancing before God, her heart filled with scorn.They brought the Ark of God and set it in the middle of the tent pavilion that David had pitched for it. Then and there David worshiped, offering burnt offerings and peace offerings. When David had completed the sacrifices of burnt and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of God-of-the-Angel-Armies and handed out to each person in the crowd, men and women alike, a loaf of bread, a date cake, and a raisin cake. Then everyone went home.
