Scriptural Ground

Peace to the brothers and sisters, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 6:23 NIV).

Prayer of Approach

Gracious God, so many are the needs of your people as we look to the future. Surely you are the God who provides us with direction. Direct me into deeper fellowship with you as you lead me among those who are of like mind through faith in your Son, our Saviour. Draw me nearer to you that I may dwell more securely in your Word that brings light to those who seek to know you. Impart your presence to me that I may see what you want me to see, understand what you want me to understand, receive what you want me to receive and strengthen what you want me to strengthen.

Hear and receive this prayer through the living Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

A Moment With God

It is among the people of God that there is the possibility of renewal for one’s own soul. As we share our experiences of encounter with the living God the gifts that we most need can arise in our hearts. The assurance of God’s presence comes as we hear that God has been with others who have been in situations similar to those in which we have found ourselves but they have emerged to continue to serve Him as they have depended on the Saviour. Appreciation for the needs of others can be deepened as we ponder what may have made the burdens we bear less of a hindrance in our walk with Christ. The reality of the sovereignty of God can be brought into clearer focus as we listen to how answers to prayer have taken shape in unexpected ways that have brought glory to the Name of Jesus.
