Daily Devotions for April 7th, 2020

Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Father God

Reading : JOHN 12 verses 12-19

Meditation : consider all that happens here!
What words stay with you? What is God saying to you from His Word today?

And then Pray in response to what you have read
Taking time to wait before God

Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
I have read these words
And now I pray for you to work them out
as a living reality in my life – even today
as I thank you that you are with me
on my journey through life.
In Jesus’ name.

Take time to listen for God to speak with you at this time of day
…..and respond to His voice….
Father God…thank you.


Reading : read the verses again from John 12
Reflect on these words and events…. And then pray as your day closes

LORD God, our great God,
For all of today
I thank You,
Even for those things that have caused me fear and concern.
Help me to rest in Your unfailing love and on Your faithful Word
As I wait for tomorrow.
As I look around at this world
In these days.
Have mercy O Lord!
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Time out Tuesday in Holy Week

This is indeed an unusual Holy Week.

Yet our God is Loving, Faithful and only a prayer away!

As a Church we have set aside a Tuesday each week and provided a place with space – the UPPER ROOM.
However in these times it is not possible to open and run this space sadly.

But…our Tuesdays can still be an opportunity for time out…

You are invited to pause at some time in your Tuesday and be still with God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

You are encouraged to speak with Him…to listen to Him…to receive from Him…

You are invited to share in the Midday Prayer and Evening Prayer that will be posted online at 12noon and 9pm.
We are also encouraged to pray the Lord’s Prayer with others in our city at 5pm.

You are invited to pray with others in our Church family as we journey through this Holy Week together.

You may wish to use the PowerPoint provided online from

Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from the LORD God, the Eternal One

Reading : JOHN 11 verses 38-44

Meditation : take time to consider these dramatic events
Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead!
What words or images stay with you?
What is God saying to you today from His Word?

And for a family known to you at this time

Living and resurrected Jesus,
Lord of life,
Have mercy on us and our church family we ask in these days
For we believe and trust in you.


Pray God’s blessing on those attending and leading funerals this week
O LORD, hear our prayers at this time of day and have mercy we ask.

Reflect on their meaning for you and pray in response…to this God of ours

O Living and True God, our God, hear our evening prayers
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sinned against us even today.
Oh pour out a blessing on those we name before you
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
