Daily Devotions for Thursday 26th January, 2023

Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Father God

Reading : MATTHEW chapter 5 verses 38-47

Meditation : take time and consider these words this morning.
Eye for eye. Tooth for tooth.
Love your enemies.

Which words stay with you?
What is your response to God’s Word today?

Then pause to pray to this God, our God

And so we bring our morning prayers to you, our God
Forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray God’s blessing on Jenny Thomasi and her family
God of grace…hear our prayers and pour a blessing we ask

Reading : read these verses again from MATTHEW chapter 5 verses 38-47
Reflect on the words and images – at the end of your day
and Pray with honest words in response to this God – our God

People will speak of your mighty deeds,
and I will proclaim your greatness.
They will tell about all your goodness
and sing about your kindness.
The LORD is loving and merciful,
slow to become angry and full of constant love.
He is good to everyone
and has compassion on all he made.

O LORD, hear our evening prayers
Forgive us our sins of this day
As we forgive those who have sinned against us – even today
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
