Upper Room day and evening Gathering for Prayer

Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Jesus, Saviour and Lord

Reading : JOHN chapter 14 again
Jesus – the only Way, Truth, Life
The Holy Spirit – promised

What words or images stay with you?
What is God teaching/reminding you today?
What are you asking Him for at this time?

Pray in response to what you have read
Taking time to pause and listen for God’s answer to you

I call to the LORD for help;
I plead with him.
I bring him all my complaints;
I tell him all my troubles.

In Jesus’ name,

Take time to listen for God to speak with you at this time of day
Ask, seek, knock….hear!
Father God…thank you.

Reading : read JOHN 14 again – in another version?
Reflect on these words from Jesus…. and then Pray….to Him

I call to the LORD for help;
I plead with him.
I bring him all my complaints;
I tell him all my troubles.

In Jesus’ name.
Amen and Amen.

Daily Devotions for OCTOBER 2023

Jesus answered him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life;
no one goes to the Father except by me.”

John 14 verse 6

During 2022 we were looking daily at the theme of GOOD NEWS as we journeyed with Paul through his letter to the ROMANS.
In 2023, we are looking at TELLING OTHERS THE GOOD NEWS with Matthew, Mark, Luke and John……and pausing at our times of Midday Devotion to pray for others in our church family, our city and our world.

In October we continue our journey through JOHN’s GOSPEL.

We are all invited to listen for God’s voice and make our response as we journey together in our ‘rhythm of devotion’ in 2023.

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.

Reading and Meditation on the content and Prayer of response
Prayer – mostly for others

Reflection and Prayer at the end of the day

A Prayer for the Month of OCTOBER

Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life……If you knew me
you would know the Father as well.”
We pray: – Lord abide in us as the Father does in you.

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
