Daily Devotions for Sunday 3rd December, 2023

First Sunday in Advent

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

Reading : ISAIAH chapter 9 verse 1-7
Meditation : take time and consider these words this Sunday morning
The future King
A child is born

What encourages and challenges you today?
What words stay with you?

And then pray in response to the LORD our God
Pray your own prayer as you step into today.
Looking again at verses 6 and 7

In Jesus’ Wonderful 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 verses again from ISAIAH chapter 9 verses 1-7
Reflect on all that is said here in this short passage and then Pray in response to this God

O LORD, our Great God,
Wondeful Counsellor
Prince of Peace
Hear our evening prayers of praise we ask
As we thank you for what we read
As we look back over our day
As we look ahead to tomorrow
As we name before you those we are concerned about.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
