The Ten Commandments

Have no other gods,

serve only the Lord.

Make not an idol,

to worship, adore.

Use proper His Name,

don’t speak it in vain.

Set aside Sabbath,

these truths we proclaim.

Honor your parents,

and thou shall not kill.

Don’t give into lust,

nor bend to your will.

Steal not from others,

and keep far from lies.

Be not envious,

for sinful soul dies.

(Responding to Exodus 20:1-17)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You have given us a guide for right living.  Thank You that You do not expect us to accomplish nor master obedience in our own strength.  Thank You that You sent Your Son for the forgiveness of our sins for every time that we have failed – be it in word, thought, or deed; and thank You that You empower every heart that invites You in, with Your Spirit to lead us and guide us to what is right.  Forgive us Father for where we have fallen short, and lead us to lean on You to learn how to walk in faithful obedience all of our days.  Be glorified in all that we do and say, and may many come to know You by our love.  Amen.
