Gathering for Prayer Together

Tuesday 31st January
On Zoom 7.30-8.30

As a Church Family we will come together to give Thanks……to wait and Listen to God… ask for wisdom and guidance regarding the way ahead for our SEEPG group of churches…and for the needs in our Church Family at this time

You are invited to gather with others

Time-Out with God

As we journey through these early days of 2023……

At Liberton Kirk we usually set aside a Tuesday each week and provide a place with space – the UPPER ROOM – a place for time-out in our busy days above the Kirkgate Cafe. This is a safe place for you to be.

The Upper Room will be open once again this Tuesday…..and you are invited to take time-out with God at some point…7.30am – 7.30pm….and to pause with Him….reflecting…praying….

This is a quiet place…..a safe place for you and God to take time-out together

* A space for you to be still in a busy world
** To pause and pray with God at this significant time – the God of all comfort, wisdom, mercy and hope
* To listen to God – Father Son and Holy Spirit – in these times

There are opportunities to pause and pray with others at 8am, 12 noon and 7pm….and John and others gathered then will be happy to see you at any of these times…..or you can arrange to pray with the Prayer Team at some point suitable for you….

You are invited to visit the Offering House – beside the gates – 8am-5pm – there are several helpful reflections and prayers – and helpful leaflets and booklets about our faith and our Kirk. There is also a Prayer Request Box situated here for you to leave your own personal requests – our Prayer Team will prayerfully support those you name.

The Daily Devotions have been taking us to a daily time of considering God’s Good News with God’s written Word – and you may want to pause to pray with others at the start of each day as we consider the truths behind the words of this part of the Bible. During January we begin to focus on Telling Others the Good News from Matthew’s Gospel. This is available on the Kirk website blog and our social media pages on Facebook and Twitter from 7am- and in the church magazine.

And – don’t forget the brief Sunday morning Reflection at 8am…….and you can still revisit Thy Kingdom Come global prayer venture daily reflections on our YouTube channel…..from our Prayer Ministry Team providing a reflection over the 11 days period

May we each and all experience time-out with the Living and True God – whenever – wherever – as we journey through this January 2023.

Daily Devotions for Monday 23rd January, 2023

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from God, the Holy Spirit

Reading : MATTHEW chapter 5 verses 27-30

Meditation : take time and consider this psalm of praise this particular Sunday morning.
It is better for you to…

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

Then Pray with honest and humble words in response to the LORD our God
Naming others before Father God

In Jesus’ name, Amen


Pray God’s blessing on Emily and Laura as they serve us
God of grace and mercy and rich blessing, hear our prayers we ask.

Reading : read these verses again from MATTHEW chapter 5 verses 27-30
Reflect on what you read and then pray in response to our God in response

And so to you, O Father God, we bring our evening words of prayer
Naming others before you
In Jesus’ name, Amen

Thy Kingdom Come – at Midday – Silence

As a Church we were part of the global prayer venture last year in the 11 day run up to Pentecost – Thy Kingdom Come.

This prayer continues around the world throughout the year!

Each Sunday at Midday we are re-visiting one of the daily themes….and this time we revisit the theme of SILENCEas we watch and listen on this Sunday in January 2023….
