Daily Devotions for Thursday 2nd February, 2023

Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Father God

Reading : MATTHEW 7 verses 12-14

Meditation : take time and carefully consider these words from Jesus
The Narrow Gate.
What do they mean for you at this time?
Which road are you on?

Then pray in response to the LORD as your day starts
Looking again at verse 14
Naming others on their road at this time

In Jesus’ name. Amen and Amen.

Pray God’s blessing on those on our church prayer list
Lord, hear our prayers and give help we ask.

Reading : read these particular verses again from MATTHEW 7 verses 12-14
Reflect on the words spoken here – and what God is saying to you now.

O LORD, hear our evening prayers as this day closes
As we praise you for who You are
As we return our thanks to You for help received today
As we humbly confess our sins
As we name others on their journey in life
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
