Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from God, the Holy Spirit, on this Sunday
Reading : PSALM 119 verse 90
Meditation : take time to consider this part of the psalm.
What is God saying to you today from his Word?
What are you encouraged and challenged by?
Pray in response to what you have read and considered
Pray for our morning service of worship together to evidence God at work
In Jesus’ name
Today this is my prayer
For I believe and trust in Him
Today this is our prayer
For we believe and trust in Him
Pray the Prayer for the Month as your own Midday Prayer
In Joshua we see Israel in the wilderness and the lesson that fullness of your will in us is through Jesus and not the law.
Lord, just as your people Israel experienced swollen rivers and walled cities, so do we today with viruses and sickness, people lost in darkness, man’s inhumanity to man, poverty and hardship close to home. Equip us in your strength to overcome. Bring us into your fullness; deliverance, healing and abundant living; and plant in us the fruit of your Spirit. Help us face the future with courage and keep us fixed on your Word.
Lord, your people had to wait faithfully and patiently to enter the promised land; they suffered loss when Moses, their leader, was taken from them but you met them in their loss and provided for them a new leader to take them through.
When we become impatient in waiting for you to act we need to remember that you operate on a whole different level to our understanding. Please help us to trust and feel your presence with us as we wait on you.
Thank you for your promise that you will never leave us alone.
Reading : read Psalm 119.90 again as your day ends
Reflect on the truths beyond the words and then Pray to this God …our God
Including for others known to you in need at this time
O Father, Son and Holy Spirit, hear our evening prayers
As we praise You for who You are
As we return our thanks to you for the blessings of this Sunday.
As we name others in need before You.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
