Isaiah 30:19-26

19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem; 
thou shalt weep no more. 
He will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; 
when He shall hear it, He will answer thee. 
20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, 
yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers. 
21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, "This is the way; walk ye in it," 
when ye turn to the right hand and when ye turn to the left. 
22 Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver 
and the ornament of thy molten images of gold. 
Thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; 
thou shalt say unto it, "Get thee hence." 

23 Then shall He give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground therewith, and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous. In that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures. 24 The oxen likewise and the young asses that till the ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan. 25 And there shall be upon every high mountain and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of His people and healeth the stroke of their wound.

Psalm 147:1-11

1 Praise ye the LORD! For it is good to sing praises unto our God;
for it is pleasant, and praise is comely.

2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem;
He gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
3 He healeth the broken in heart,
and bindeth up their wounds.
4 He telleth the number of the stars;
He calleth them all by their names.
5 Great is our Lord, and of great power;
His understanding is infinite.
6 The LORD lifteth up the meek;
He casteth the wicked down to the ground.

7 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving;
sing praise upon the harp unto our God,
8 who covereth the heavens with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth,
who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
9 He giveth to the beast his food
and to the young ravens which cry.
10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse;
He taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear Him,
in those that hope in His mercy.

Matthew 9:35-38

35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were faint and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then said He unto His disciples,

"The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few. 38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His harvest."

Words of Worship - Isaiah 33:22

For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver,
the Lord is our king; He will save us.

Matthew 10:1-15

1 And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. 2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: the first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.

5 These twelve Jesus sent forth and commanded them, saying, "Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not. 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, `The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.' 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils. Freely ye have received; freely give. 9 Provide neither gold nor silver nor brass in your purses, 10 nor pack for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves; for the workman is worthy of his meat. 11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there abide till ye go thence. 12 And when ye come into a house, salute it, 13 and if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. 15 Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for that city.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 1:20

Wisdom crieth without;
she uttereth her voice in the streets.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 5:10

Blessed are they that are persecuted for righteousness' sake,
for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
