Daily Devotions for Tuesday 17th May, 2022

Upper Room day – time-out with God

Morning
Look Upward and Pray to hear and receive from Father God

Reading : ROMANS 6 verse 22

Meditation : consider this verse as your day starts.
Set free.
Slaves of God.
Eternal life.

What do the words mean for you in your life at this time?

Take time to Pray in response to the LORD our God
Honestly
Humbly
Asking….seeking…..receiving…..


In Jesus’ Name
Amen.


Midday

Take time to listen for God to speak with you at this time of day
‘Thy Kingdom come’ Father God
LORD our God…thank you.

Evening
Reading : read the set verse again from ROMANS 6
Reflect on the words…. And then pray to this God in response

Lord Jesus, Son of God, Giver of rest,
Hear our evening prayers,
As we return our thanks to you.
As we look back on our day
As we trust you for tomorrow
As we now rest in You this evening
Amen and Amen.

Time-Out Tuesday

As a Church we usually set aside a Tuesday each week and provide a place with space – the UPPER ROOM – a place for time-out in our busy days above the Kirkgate Cafe. This is a safe place for you to be.

As we journey further into 2022, the Upper Room will be open this Tuesday 7.30am-7.30pm – and perhaps this will be a place for you to visit – as a place to pause and pray in particular for the situation in Ukraine and our world at this time. We are joining with 24-7 Prayer across the nation and the world in this venture.

* To find a quiet space for yourself to be still in a busy world
** To pause and pray with God – the God of all comfort, wisdom, mercy and hope
* To listen to God – Father Son and Holy Spirit – in these times

There will be opportunities to pause and pray with others – at 8am – 12 noon – 7.30pm – and John and those who gather will be glad to share these with you as we turn in prayer with others.

You are invited to visit the Word for Today as you walk the grounds around the Kirk building – the focus these days is on the Lord’s Prayer and there are helpful posters – starting at the Offering House.

You are also invited to use the bench at the top left of the Kirkyard (under the large tree – weather permitting) to pause and pray – to be still with God – to ask, seek, knock, wait and receive.

You are also reminded of the Prayer Wall available on the Kirk website under the Prayer tab – a place you can bring your prayers – and ask for prayer from the Prayer Team if appropriate. At this time of war in Ukraine you may want to add your own prayer for our world at this time.

The Daily Devotions are taking us to a daily time of considering God’s Good News with God’s written Word in the book of ROMANS during 2022 – and you may want to pause to pray with others at the start of each day. This is available on the Kirk website blog and our social media pages on Facebook and Twitter from 7am- and in the church magazine.

And – don’t forget the brief Sunday morning Reflection at 8am…..and the upcoming Thy Kingdom Come prayer venture.

May we each and all experience time-out with the Living and True God – whenever – wherever – as we journey through these days of May 2022.

As we name others we care about before you
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
