Daily Devotions for Tuesday 19th March, 2024

Upper Room day and Service of Healing in evening


Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Jesus, Saviour and Lord

Reading : ROMANS 2 verses 1-16
Meditation : take time and consider these words and truths this morning.
God’s judgement

What words or images stay with you?
What is God saying to you afresh today?

Take time to pause and Pray in response to what you have read
Taking time to pause and listen for God’s answer to you

I call to the LORD for help;
I plead with him.
I bring him all my complaints;
I tell him all my troubles.

We believe
Help our unbelief
As we wrestle with your Gospel ways in our lives

In Jesus’ name,

Take time to listen for God to speak with you at this time of day
Ask, seek, knock….hear!
Father God…thank you.

Reading : ROMANS 2 verses 1-16 – in another version?
Reflect on these words and truths…. and then Pray….to the LORD our God
Father, Son and Holy Spirit

With honest humility

I call to the LORD for help;
I plead with him.
I bring him all my complaints;
I tell him all my troubles.

In Jesus’ name.
Amen and Amen.

Time-out Tuesday Healing

As we journey through these days of Lent in March 2024….

At Liberton Kirk we usually set aside a Tuesday each week and provide a place with space – the UPPER ROOM – a place for time-out in our busy days above the Kirkgate Cafe. This is a safe place for you to be.

The Upper Room will be open this Tuesday and you are encouraged to take time-out with God…..to find a quiet place with space at this busy time of year…..7.30am-7.00pm……with opportunities to pray with John and others at 8am… Midday and 7pm.

* A space for you to be still in your busy needy world
** To pause and pray with God at this time – the God of all comfort, wisdom, mercy and hope.
* To listen to God – Father Son and Holy Spirit – in these times

In the evening you are invited to join with others for our Service for Healing – in the Kirk – 7.30-8.30pm when there will be an opportunity for worship, personal stories, a short talk and prayer ministry.

You are encouraged to visit the Offering House – beside the gates – 8am-5pm each day – where you can find more information and helpful leaflets and booklets about our faith and our Kirk. There is also a Prayer Request Box situated here for you to leave your own personal requests – our Prayer Team will prayerfully support those you name. Have you walked the newWord for Today around the Kirk building yet?

You are also encouraged to use the bench at the top left of the Kirkyard (under the large tree – weather permitting!) to pause and pray – to be still with God – to ask, seek, knock, wait and receive.

The Daily Devotions have been taking us to a daily time of considering God’s Good News with God’s written Word – and you may want to pause to pray with others at the start of each day as we consider the truths behind the words of this part of the Bible. During March our focus has been on the words and events from various parts of the Bible as we journey through Lent and into Easter weekend. These are available on the Kirk website, social media pages on Facebook from 7am- and in the church magazine.

And – don’t forget the brief Sunday morning Reflection at 8am…….and the Thy Kingdom Come global prayer venture daily reflections on our YouTube channel….from members of our Church Family providing a reflection over the 11 days period. This year the venture will run 9-19 May. Will you still be praying for 5??

May we each and all experience time-out with the Living and True God – whenever – wherever – as we journey through 2024.

Daily Devotions for Thursday 5th October, 2023

Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Father God

Reading : JOHN 9 verses 1-41
Meditation : take time and consider what is said here – as your day starts.
Jesus heals a man born blind.
Spiritual Blindness.

As you imagine these events, which words stay with you?
What is God teaching/reminding you today?

And then pray in response as your day starts

Pray your own words to the LORD God
Asking Him to show you where is a spiritual blindness

Our Father God
Hear our many prayers
For ourselves
For others
In Jesus’ name


Pray God’s blessing on Adrian Lough and his family
O LORD, hear our prayers and pour out grace and strength and wisdom we ask

Reading : read the set verses again from JOHN 9 verses 1-41
Reflect on these words again at the end of your day
and Pray in response to this God of ours with honest humility

O LORD God, hear our evening prayers
As we thank You for Your grace and touch and forgiveness in our lives.
O have mercy we ask
On others
On our Church
On our world
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
