Keep us, therefore, in your grace as you have promised.
Reading : read the verses again from JOHN 6 verses 16-59
Reflect on these words…. and then Pray in response to what you have read
This is our God! The God who gives eternal life!
Sing hymns of praise to the LORD;
play music on the harp to our God.
He spreads clouds over the sky;
he provides rain for the earth
and makes grass grow on the hills.
He gives animals their food
and feeds the young ravens when they call.
His pleasure is not in strong horses,
nor his delight in brave soldiers;
but he takes pleasure in those who honour him,
in those who trust in his constant love
In Jesus’ name, Amen!
Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from the Living God

O God of grace-giving-Life
We bow before you
We believe in you
We trust in you
We offer you our songs of praise
This new day
In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
Pray the Lord’s Prayer as your midday 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

Reading : JOHN chapter 6 verses 25-59
Meditation : take time and consider all that is said here
The Bread of Life!
What images or words stay with you?
What is God teaching/reminding you?
Where are you feeding at this time?
And then Pray with words of hunger to this God of ours in response
Happy are those who have the God of Jacob to help them
and who depend on the LORD their God,
the Creator of heaven, earth, and sea,
and all that is in them.
He always keeps his promises;
He judges in favour of the oppressed
and gives food to the hungry
And so we ask, Holy Spirit,
Create in us a deeper longer
A greater hunger
The Bread of Life
Amen – we pray together.
Pray God’s blessing on our Kirk Session Executive
