Evening Prayer with Others

As we journey into a new month – with God – together – you may want to revisit today’s Daily Devotions from ROMANS chapter 16 verses 25-27– as we continue to consider the GOOD NEWS about Jesus through 2022

We PAUSE with the Lord in prayer as the day closes

We REJOICE in the help and blessings He has given this particular Monday – 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

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

Daily Devotions for NOVEMBER 2022

Now that we have been put right with God through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 5 verse 1

During 2022 we have been looking daily at the theme of GOOD NEWS as we journeyed with Paul through his letter to the ROMANS – and pausing at our times of Midday Devotion to pray for others in our church family, our city and our world.

In November, as we move through the year, we take a final look at some of the truths again behind the words of these powerful chapters and verses.

We are all encouraged to listen for God’s voice and make our response as we journey together in our ‘rhythm of devotion’

These Devotions are but one way to feed on God’s Word in the morning, at midday, in the evening… to pray with Him continually through the day and even to share with others the treasures or hurdles you discover.
The Church website and Facebook page (even on a handy mobile) provide a fuller daily devotional page. However it all follows the pattern below which the information provided fits into, based on the Kirk’s origins of the Celtic and Northumbrian traditions which we started as a church family in 2015.

Morning
Reading and Meditation on the content and Prayer of response
Midday
Prayer – mostly for others
Evening
Verse(s) from the morning reading
Reflection and Prayer at the end of the day

A Prayer for the Month of NOVEMBER

Lord, we thank You for our founder, Paul
We thank You for his wisdom and resolve
Help us to understand the intricacy
Of his message, and to follow You as a Christian Nation
Built from the ‘nations’.
In Jesus’ name
Amen
.

The Lord’s 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
Amen
