Daily Devotions for Monday 31st July, 2023


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

Reading : LUKE 24 verses 50-52
Meditation : take time and consider this psalm of praise this particular Sunday morning.
Jesus is taken up to Heaven
Who is this Jesus to you?

Then Pray with words and songs of praise in response to the LORD our God

Praise the LORD!
Sing a new song to the LORD;
praise him in the assembly of his faithful people!
Be glad, Israel, because of your Creator;
rejoice, people of Zion, because of your king!
Praise his name with dancing;
play drums and harps in praise of him.

In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Pray God’s blessing on families across our SEECOS Church Family
God of grace and mercy and rich blessing, hear our prayers we ask.

Reading : read these closing verses again from LUKE 24 verses 50-52
Reflect on what you read and then give praise to our God in response

Praise the LORD!

The LORD takes pleasure in his people;
he honours the humble with victory.
Let God’s people rejoice in their triumph
and sing joyfully all night long.

And so to you, O God, we bring our evening words of prayer
In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Sunday Evening Prayer with Others

As we journey through this week….. with God – together – you may want to revisit today’s Daily Devotions from LUKE chapter 23 verses 1-12 – as we 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 in other parts of our world in deep need at this time

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

Bible Verse for the Week and Sunday Morning Reflection

The fool says in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
there is no one who does good.

Daily Devotions for Sunday 30th July, 2023

Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from the Living God

Reading : LUKE 24 verses 36-49

Jesus appears!!
What does this mean for you today?
What is God teaching/reminding you about Himself?

And then pray in response – using verse 49 as you turn to prayer
Come to Him with open arms
Naming others known to you seeking spiritual life and power

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 : read these particular verses again from LUKE 24 verses 36-49
Reflect on the words and images and then Pray in response to this God

I say to the LORD, “You are my God.”
Hear my cry for help, LORD!
My Sovereign LORD, my strong defender,
you have protected me in battle.

O LORD, hear our evening prayers we ask
As we thank you for the blessings of this Sunday
As we believe and trust in you
As we name others seeking you
As we pilgrimage on into this new week
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
