Daily Devotions for OCTOBER 2018

‘Salvation is to be found through him (Jesus Christ) alone;
in all the world there is no one else whom God has given
who can save us’ Acts 4 verse 12

In October we take the time each day to spend with God and His Word as we follow the Sunday morning series WHY…? and continue the Big ALPHA venture – pausing in prayer at our times of Midday Devotion for others in our church family, our city and our world at this time of the year.
The online Sunday evening devotion also now includes a Celtic Prayer.
We are all encouraged to listen for God’s voice and make our response as we continue together in our ‘rhythm of devotion’ during 2018.

These Devotions are but one way to feed on God’s Word in the morning, at midday, in the evening… to pray with Him continually through the day and even to share with others the treasures or hurdles you discover.
The Church website and Facebook page (even on a handy mobile) provide a fuller daily devotional page. However it all follows the pattern below which the information provided fits into, based on the Kirk’s origins of the Celtic and Northumbrian traditions which we started as a church family in 2015.

to which you call us,
imperfect though we are,
We thank you, Risen Christ! 

Amen 

(Adapted from The Act of Prayer by John Birch – ‘Ascension Day’, page 69)

 

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be Your Name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread And forgive us our sins As we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory. Now and for ever.

Amen

 

‘He was painfully abused, but he did not complain. He was silent like a lamb being led to the butcher, as quiet as a sheep having its wool cut off.’         Isaiah 53 verse 7        

As the year moves on and the season of Looking UPWARD together moves into Looking INWARD, so we come to April and the season of celebrating Easter. We shall take time to complete following the Sunday morning themes on The Way of the Cross’ and then we start to consider the book of 1 PETER.  

We are encouraged to listen for His voice as we continue in our ‘rhythm of devotion’ during 2017, recognising the importance of daily spending time with God, walking and talking with Him and the need to make prayer a priority in our Christian  lives – individually and together.

The Devotions are but one way to feed on God’s Word in the morning, at midday, in the evening… to pray with Him continually through your day and even to share with others the treasures or hurdles you discover.

The Church website and Facebook page (even on a handy mobile) provide a fuller daily devotional page. However it all follows the pattern below which the information provided fits into, based on the Kirk’s origins of the Celtic and Northumbrian traditions.

Liberton Celtic Devotions – February 2017

‘You are my God. I worship you. In my heart, I long for you, as I would long for a stream in a scorching desert.’                Psalm 63 verse 1        

As the year moves on and the season of Looking UPWARD together continues, so it gives us another opportunity for a God-ward vision in the company of the book of PSALMS…..and to pray for the Church world-wide in our times of Midday Devotion.

We are all encouraged to listen for His voice as we continue in our ‘rhythm of devotion’ during 2017.

The Devotions are but one way to feed on God’s Word in the morning, at midday, in the evening… to pray with Him continually through your day and even to share with others the treasures or hurdles you discover.

A Prayer for the Month

A Prayer for the Month of February

“Lord, I have heard of your fame;
I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord.
Repeat them in our day,
in our time make them known;
in wrath remember mercy.”

Our plans soon fail us, and our best intentions go awry;
We dare, when wisdom would delay;
Or dither, when you urge us: press on!
Impatiently we wait, in the space in-between,
all that we are and all that we will be,
when we see Him face to face.

“Yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Saviour.
The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
He enables me to tread on the heights”

Amen

Quotations from Habakkuk 3:2,18-19.
Timothy Sinclair

 

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven Hallowed be Your Name.
Your kingdom come
Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory. Now and for ever

Amen

Liberton Kirk Celtic Daily Devotions – January 2017

Key Verse from the Bible

‘Give ear, O God, and hear…. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act!’              Daniel 9 verses 18-19

So a New Year begins! And a new season – of Looking UPWARD together.
It is an opportunity to start the year with a God-ward vision in the company of daring DANIEL and then briefly HOSEA, JOEL, AMOS, JONAH, MICAH, NAHUM before we end the month in the company of good old complaining HABBAKUK – yes – all of them in the same month!!

We are encouraged to listen for His voice as these prophets start us off on our ‘rhythm of devotion’ in 2017.

The Devotions are but one way to feed on God’s Word in the morning, at midday, in the evening… to pray with Him continually through your day and even to share with others the treasures or hurdles you discover.

A Prayer for the Month

A Prayer for the Month of January 

Gracious God,
Where we are weak, show us.
Where we are complacent, challenge us.
Where we are faithless, rebuke us.
Where we are wrong, forgive us.
In this new year
Grant us a mind to know You,
A heart to love You,
A spirit to serve You
A voice raised in prayer to You
And a life to proclaim You.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
Amen!
