Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Father God
Reading : 1 JOHN 2 verses 1-14
Meditation : take time and consider what is said here – as your day starts.
How would you describe your relationship with Father God today?
And then pray in response as your day starts
Looking again at verses 1 and 2
(Pray your own words to the LORD God
In worship and thanks for what you have read,
In confession and need to be more like Jesus,
And for others known to you at this time in a hard place.)
O LORD of grace and truth,
Receive our morning praise and hear our prayers.
Forgive our sins
As we forgive those who have sinned against us
We ask in Jesus’ name.
Pray God’s blessing on those who are moving home today
O LORD, hear our prayers and pour out a blessing we ask on each and all
Reading : read the verses again from 1 John 2
Reflect on these words again at the end of your day
and Pray in response to this God of ours
O LORD God, hear our evening prayers as we thank You for Your call on our lives.
Oh have mercy we ask
On our Church
On our world
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
