Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn,
for they will be comforted. Blessed are
the meek, for they will inherit the land.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst
for righteousness, for they will be
satisfied. Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy. Blessed
are the clean of heart, For they will
see God. Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted,
for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
How dear to me is your dwelling place,
O Lord of Hosts!
My soul hath a desire and longing
for the Courts of the Lord;
My heart and my flesh rejoice in the
The sparrow has found her a house
and the swallow a nest where she
may lay her young;
by the side of your altars,
O Lord of hosts, my King and my
God. Happy are they who dwell
in your house.
I will lift mine eyes unto the hills
from whence cometh my help. My
help cometh from the Lord, which
made heaven and earth. He will not
suffer thy foot to be moved: he that
keepeth thee will not slumber nor
sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the
Lord is thy shade upon thy hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day,
nor the moon by night. The Lord
shall preserve thee from all evil;
He shall preserve thy soul. The Lord
shall preserve thy going out and thy
coming in from this time forth,
and even for evermore.
Let not your hearts be troubled;
believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house are many rooms;
if it were not so, would I have told you
that I go and prepare a place for you?
And when I go and prepare a place
for you, I will come again and will
take you to myself, that where I am
you may be also
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not
want. He maketh me to lie down in
green pastures; he leadeth me beside
still waters. He restoreth my soul; he
leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for His name’s 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 anointest 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.
You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast
because they trust in you.
But those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary;
they will walk and not be faint.
Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, the LORD himself,
is my strength and my defence;
he has become my salvation.”
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous
For I know the plans I have for you,”
declares the LORD, “plans to prosper
you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.
“I have told you these things,
so that in me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart!
I have overcome the world.”
Jesus looked at them and said,
“With man this is impossible,
but not with God;
all things are possible with God.”
He replied, “Because you have so little
faith. Truly I tell you, if you have
faith as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’ and it
will move. Nothing will be
impossible for you.”
Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid;
do not be discouraged,
for the LORD your God will be
with you wherever you go.”
One thing I ask from the LORD,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the
LORD all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
Psalm 18 1-2
I love you, LORD, my strength.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress
and my deliverer;
my God is my rock,
in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation,
Taste and see
that the LORD is good;
blessed is the one
who takes refuge in him.
Look to the LORD and his strength;
seek his face always.
1 CHRONICLES 16:11
For the Spirit God gave us
does not make us timid,
but gives us power,
love and self – discipline.
2 TIMOTHY 1:7
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus,
and you will be saved—you and your
Set your minds on things above,
not on earthly things.
Be kind and compassionate to one
another, forgiving each other,
just as in Christ God forgave you.
Remember those earlier days after you
had received the light,
when you endured in a great conflict
full of suffering.
“You are the light of the world. A town
built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it
The name of the LORD is a fortified tower;
the righteous run to it and are safe.
Let everything that has breath praise the
LORD. Praise the LORD.
