James 4:1-10: Draw near to God and he will draw near to you

{all readings for the day: Psalm 110; Proverbs 1:20-33; James 4:1-10 }


Almighty God, you have poured upon us the new light of your incarnate Word: Grant that this light, enkindled in our hearts, may shine forth in our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. (source)

Lord, have mercy on us. Christ, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us. Amen.
