May you always be joyful in your union with the Lord.
I say it again: rejoice!
Philippians 4 verse 4
During 2021 we are looking daily at the theme of PRAYER – and pausing at our times of Midday Devotion to pray for others in our church family, our city and our world at this time.
* From September to December we will be looking at P-R-A-Y
(with credit to Lectio365/24-7 Prayer for this helpful aid)
Pause – Rejoice – Ask – Yield
And so this month we shall be taking the time to REJOICE with God in His written Word. *
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.

A Prayer for the Month of OCTOBER
We rejoice in your love, O God!
We rejoice in your care, O Father God!
We rejoice in your saving grace, O Lord!
We rejoice in your good gifts, O merciful Lord!
We give thanks!
We worship you!
With our words and songs of praise!
In Jesus’ name
Amen and 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
