range of readers that can be downloaded or viewed online free.

children's twin vision books from NLS takes quite awhile.  This is not meant to

I have also found some educational materials in other sites to come that has 
proved helpful to copy/pste. It is a bit of extra work but well worth the extra

"Heavenly Father, have mercy on all your people and heal the divisions in the 
body of Christ. May all Christian people throughout the world attain the unity 
for which Jesus prayed on the eve of his sacrifice. Renew in us the power of 
the Spirit that we may be a sign of that unity and a means of its growth. 
Increase in us a fervent love for all our brothers and sisters in Jesus 

Psalm 16:1-2,5-9,11 

1 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. 
2 I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you." 
5 The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. 
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yes, I have a goodly 
7 I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs 
8 I keep the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not 
be moved. 
9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also dwells secure. 
11 You show me the path of life; in your presence there is fulness of joy, in 
your right hand are pleasures for evermore.
