The Daily Texts is a devotional published annually by Mount Carmel Ministries. The day’s tools include an Old Testament lesson and a New Testament lesson to help focus your prayer. The little book also urges a pattern called T.R.I.P., modeled after Martin Luther’s way of praying to guide the time of devotion.
T.R.I.P. stands for:
- Thanks—a time of consideration of what God is offering you, giving you the opportunity to say thank you.
- Regret—after remembering how thankful you are for the gifts God has given you, you may consider what habit or attitude is not in agreement with God’s special care for you.
- Intercession—a time to ask the Holy Spirit to help in some concrete way.
- Purpose—a time of opportunity to see how God is leading you today.
Copies of Daily Texts are available for purchase at the communications table in the narthex or you may order a copy directly from the Mt. Carmel website.

Book of Faith Weekly Initiative
The Book of Faith is an initiative of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It invites the whole church to become more fluent in the first language of faith, the language of scripture, in order that we might live into our calling as a people renewed, enlivened, and empowered by the Word to serve God and neighbor.
