Lectionary Scripture Highlight: Romans 4:1-12
Now to one who works, wages are not reckoned as a gift but as something due. But to one who without works trusts him who justifies the ungodly, such faith is reckoned as righteousness. So also David speaks of the blessedness of those to whom God reckons righteousness apart from works:
“Blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the one against whom the Lord will not reckon sin.”
Prayer of the Day
Hanging as a vine upon the Wood, O Christ our Saviour, Thou hast made the ends of the earth to drink from the wine of incorruption. Therefore do I cry aloud: Give me to drink from the sweet wine of true compunction, and grant me now the strength, O Saviour, to fast from sensual pleasures, for Thou art good and lovest mankind.
