Daily Devotions for Saturday 11th March, 2023

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

Reading : PSALM 7
Meditation : take time to consider these verses this morning in this season of Lent.
A Prayer for Justice.
The LORD is Judge of All Mankind.

What encourages and challenges you today?
What is God saying to you from His Word?

And then Pray in response
For our nation
For our world

I look up to you,
Up to heaven, where you rule.

Hear my morning prayer
Hear the morning prayers of your people
For our nation
For this world.

In Jesus’ name.

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 PSALM 7
Reflect on these words as you look back over the day and then Pray in response

I look up to you,
Up to heaven, where you rule.

Hear my evening prayer
Hear the evening prayers of your people
For this world
For our nation

In Jesus’ name.

Prayer for our Leaders, our Nation – with others

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all people.

1 Timothy 2 verses 1-6
