Daily Devotions for Sunday 2nd December, 2018

First Sunday of Advent

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

Reading : ISAIAH 9 verse 7

Meditation : take time to consider these words about Jesus the Christ
What is God saying to you today from his Word?
Look again at the words as you turn to God in prayer.

Then take time to Pray in response to what you have read and considered

In Jesus’ name

Pray for a church near your home to know Sunday blessings
O LORD God, hear and answer our prayers we ask.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Reading : read the verse again as your day ends
Reflect on the truths beyond the words and then Pray to our God …
Including for your Church Family.
A Celtic Prayer
O Son of God
Change my heart.
Your Spirit composes the songs of the birds and the buzz of the bees.
I ask of you only one more miracle:
Beautify my soul.

Daily Devotions for December 2018

‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and for ever..’
Hebrews 13 verse 8

As the year comes to an end, so we travel through selected verses – one a day – and focus solely on the Person of Jesus, the Son of God and Son of Man. We pause in prayer at our times of Midday Devotion for others in our church family, our city and our world.

We are all encouraged to listen for God’s voice as we continue together
in our ‘rhythm of devotion’ during this final month of 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

Reflection and Prayer at the end of the day

A Prayer for the Month of December
Saviour and Lord
I welcome you
I bow before you

My Jesus
I celebrate you
I worship you

Name above all names
We lay ourselves before you
And live to serve you

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
