Bible Verses

James 1:5-8 Ask in faith, not doubting

5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and he will be given it. 6 But he should ask in faith, not doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed about by the wind. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord, 8 since he is a man of two minds, unstable in all his ways.

Romans 11:33-36 Who has know the mind of the Lord?

33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How inscrutable are His judgements and how unsearchable His ways!

34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord or who has been hist counselor?”

35 “Or who has given Him anything that he may be repaid?”

36 For from Him and through Him and for Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen

Rev 21:1-5 All things new

1 Then I saw new heavens and a new earth. The former heavens and the former earth had passed away, and the sea was no longer. 2 I also saw a new Jerusalem, the holy city, coming down out of heaven from God, beautiful as a bride prepared to meet her husband. 3 I heard a loud voice from the throne cry out: “This is God’s dwelling among men. He shall dwell with them and they shall be his people and he shall be their God who is always with them. 4 He shall wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain, for the former world has passed away.”

5 The one who sat on the throne said to me, “See, I make all things new!” Then he said, “Write these matters down, for the words are trustworthy and true!”

Matthew 6:24-34 No man can serve two masters

6:24 “No man can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other or be attentive to one and despise the other. You cannot give yourself to God and money.
6:25 I warn you, then: do not worry about your livelihood, what your are to eat or drink or use for clothing. Is not life more than food? Is not the body more valuable than clothes?
6:26 “Look at the birds in the sky. They do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?
6:27 Which of you by worrying can add a moment to his life-span?
6:28 As for clothes, why be concerned? Learn a lesson from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work; they do not spin.
6:29 Yet I assure you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was arrayed like one of these.
6:30 If God can clothe in such splendor the grass of the field, which blooms today and is thrown on the fire tomorrow, will he not provide much more for you, O weak in faith!
6:31 Stop worrying, then, over questions like, ‘What are we to eat, or what are we to drink, or what are we to wear?’
6:32 The unbelievers are always running after these things. Your heavenly Father knows all that you need.
6:33 Seek first his kingship over you, his way of holiness, and all of these things will be given you besides.
6:34 Enough, then, of worrying about tomorrow. Let tomorrow take care of itself. Today has troubles enough of its own.

Luke 1:44 The infant in my womb leaped for joy

For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.

Luke 1:46-55 Canticle of Mary

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.

From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and Holy is his Name.

He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.

He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.

Philippians 2:1-11 Jesus Christ is Lord!

In the name of the encouragement you owe me in Christ, in the name of the solace that love can give, of fellowship in spirit, compassion, and pity, I beg you: make my joy complete by your unanimity, possessing the one love, united in spirit and ideals. Never act out of rivalry or conceit; rather, let all parties think humbly of others as superior to themselves, each of you looking to others’ interests rather than to his own. Your attitude must be that of Christ:

Though he was in the form of God,
he did not deem equality with God something to be grasped at.

Rather, he emptied himself and took the form of a slave,
being born in the likeness of men.

He was known to be of human estate,
and it was thus that he humbled himself,
obediently accepting even death,
death on a cross!

Because of this,
God highly exalted him
and bestowed on him the name
above every other name,

So that at Jesus’’ name
every knee must bend
in the heavens , on the earth,
and under the earth, and every tongue proclaim
to the glory of God the Father:


Luke 2:8-14 Nativity

2:8 * Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock.
2:9 The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck with great fear.
2:10 The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
2:11 * For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.
2:12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”
2:13 And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:

2:14 * “Glory to God in the highest
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

Micah 6:8 You have been told, O man

You have been told, O man, what is good,
and what the Lord requires of you:
Only to do right and to love goodness,
and to walk humbly with your God.

Philippians 4:8 Think about these things

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if there is anything excellent or praiseworthy, think about these things.

2 Corinthians 6:16 – 7:1 We are the temple of the living God

6:16 For we are the temple of the living God; as God said:
“I will live with them and move among them, *
and I will be their God
and they shall be my people.
6:17 Therefore, come forth from them
and be separate,” says the Lord,
“and touch nothing unclean;
then I will receive you
6:18 and I will be a father to you,
and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
says the Lord Almighty.”
7:1 Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of flesh and spirit, making holiness perfect in the fear of God.

1 Peter 2:21-24 By His wounds you were healed

Christ suffered for you and left you an example, to have you follow in his footsteps. He did no wrong; no deceit was found in his mouth. When he was insulted, he returned no insult. When he was made to suffer, he did not counter with threats. Instead, he delivered himself up to the One who judges justly. In his own body he brought your sins to the cross, so that all of us, dead to sin, could live in accord with God’s will. By his wounds you were healed.

Psalm 127:1 Unless the Lord builds the house

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.

Luke 17:10 We have only done our duty

So you also, when you have done all that is commanded you, say ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty’.


Eucharistic Prayer II Preface

It is truly right and just, our duty and salvation, always and everywhere to give you thanks, Father most holy, through your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, your Word through whom you made all things, whom you sent as our Savior and Redeemer, incarnate by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin. Fulfilling your will and gaining for you a holy people, he stretched out his hands as he endured his Passion, so as to break the bonds of death and manifest the resurrection. And so, with the Angels and all the Saints we declare your glory, as with one voice we acclaim:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.


St. Augustine, The Din of Vanity

Be not vain, my soul, and take care that the ear of your heart be not deafened by the din of your vanity. (from ‘Confessions’ Book IV).

    I like Micah 6:8 and Philippians 4:8. They’re easy to remember…
