Opening Prayer: How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! (Psalm 119:103)
Scripture: Proverbs 4:20-22
Journal: Where and how has God's word been sweet and life-giving to you lately? What is he saying to you today?
Reflection: All his words contain supernatural mysteries and are full of heavenly sweetness, if only they have a diligent reader (one who knows how to suck honey out of a rock, and oil out of the hardest stone). - Bernard of Clairvaux
Prayer for the church, for others, for myself

The Thornston Educational Fund is an organization whose mission is to initiate and develop relationships with certain educational institutions that serve the needs of underprivileged individuals and families in Asia. Pray today for the organization's work and for the people who are served.
Closing Prayer: Your word, O Lord, is eternal, it stands firm in the heavens. Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established the earth, and it endures. Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you. If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life. (Psalm 119:89-93)
