Daily Devotions for Friday 24th December, 2021

Morning
Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Jesus on this CHRISTmas Eve

Reading : JOHN 1 verses 6-18

Meditation : as we pause with Jesus this morning, take time and consider all that is said here.
What images or words stay with you?
What is God saying to you today from His Word?

And then pray in response – as your day starts
including for others feeling distant from God at this time

Pray your own honest words to the LORD our God.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Midday
Pray with thanksgiving for all local shopkeepers near your home
Father God, hear our prayers and bless them all real good we ask

Evening

Reading : read this set passage again from JOHN 1
Reflect on the words and events here and pray in response to the Master Planner

O LORD, hear our evening prayers
As we return our thanks to you
For who you
And for the blessings of this day
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
