Good morning friends.
On Sunday we were very blessed to share in worship and open prayer together with people on zoom. I sensed the leading of the Spirit for this New Year — to seek our God more diligently in prayer and to read the Bible together. I am convinced that in these are rich blessings that will bring clarity and hope to our steps this year. So, I encourage you to maintain a daily focus of prayer and if you need to, (as written in the word) use the Lord’s Prayer to guide you through these five steps each day.
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Matt 6: 9
(PRAYER) Father: Creator / Sustainer. Holiness: Purity / Character.
Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Matt 6: 10
(PRAYER) Kingdom: Current / Coming. Will: Sovereign / Command.
Give us today our daily bread. Matt 6: 11
(PRAYER) Practical: Provision / Health. Emotional: Mental / Aspirations.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. Matt 6: 12
(PRAYER) Forgive: Our Actions / Thoughts. Forgive: Other’s Actions & Words.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. Matt 6: 13
(PRAYER) Protection: Worldliness / Sin. Rescue: Evil / Failure
We look forward this Sunday to have a time of open sharing on how God has “Inspired” you in recent weeks. The message will focus on two important values of our church, to Love and Inspire one another..
