Daily Devotions for Thursday 19th January, 2023

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Father God

Reading : read MATTHEW chapter 5 verses 11 and 12 again– in another version?
Reflect on the words…. and then Pray….to the LORD our God

Meditation : take time and consider these words this morning.
Insulted. Persecuted.
Reward in Heaven.

Which words stay with you?
What is your response to God’s Word today?

Then pause to pray in response to this faithful and merciful God

And so we bring our sacrifice of praise to you, our God
Naming others in a hard place before you
Forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray God’s blessing on Judy Weston and our Finance Team
God of grace…hear our prayers and pour a blessing we ask

Reading : read MATTHEW chapter 5 verses 11 and 12 again

Reflect on the words and images – at the end of your day
and Pray with honest words in response to this God – our God

People will speak of your mighty deeds,
and I will proclaim your greatness.
They will tell about all your goodness
and sing about your kindness.
The LORD is loving and merciful,
slow to become angry and full of constant love.
He is good to everyone
and has compassion on all he made.

O LORD, hear our evening prayers
Forgive us our sins of this day
As we forgive those who have sinned against us – even today
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
