Sunday Evening Prayer with Others

As we step into a week….. with God – together – and in this season of Lent – you may want to revisit today’s Daily Devotions from MATTHEW chapter 15 verses 10-20– as we start to consider TELLING OTHERS THE GOOD NEWS about Jesus through 2023.

We PAUSE with the Lord in prayer as the day closes

We REJOICE in the help and blessings He has given this particular Sunday – to us and to others

We ASK for His presence, peace and strength – for ourselves and for others in our church family and our nation and in our world at this time – especially prayerfully supporting the people of Turkey and Syria, Ukraine and other parts of our world in deep need at this time

We YIELD – say Yes – to His Kingdom ways for tomorrow

Daily Devotions for Monday 16th January, 2023

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

Reading : MATTHEW chapter 5 verse 8

Meditation : take time to consider these words as your day starts.
The pure in heart.
Let the Holy Spirit speak with you about your inner being.

Then Pause to Pray in response to the LORD our God
With honest humility.

Pray your own words at the start of this day
Of praise and thanksgiving
Of confession and trust
For others
For our nation
For our world

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray God’s blessing on John and Lindsay and their family.
God of grace and mercy and rich blessing, hear our prayers we ask.

Reading : read these words again from MATTHEW chapter 5 verse 8 – in another version?
Reflect prayerfully on what you read and then pray to our God in response

True and Faithful One, hear my evening prayer
Have mercy
Purify my heart
As I lay myself and this world before you at the end of today
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
