Daily Prayer

Daily Prayer book

Worship – 25th February 2018

I pray today Lord, for those people who cannot join with other Christians in corporate worship. I think of those who have to work, those who are far away from fellow Christians, and those who are too ill to join with others. Let the word of God reach them through the radio or TV and speak deeply to their hearts. I ask in Christ’s name – AMEN.

Severe drought – 24th February 2018

I pray Lord, for those people living in areas where there is severe drought. Help the authorities to make wise decisions about water rationing, and to remain sensitive to people’s needs all the way. Make the people responsible in their use of the small water resources that are available. Lord, send them rain. I ask it in Christ’s name – AMEN.

Sadness – 23rd February 2018

Lord, help me to be sensitive to the people I meet today. If any are sad, help me to be aware of them and supportive towards them in whatever is causing their sadness. Help me to detect where someone is worried about something, fearful because of some problem, or aware of some illness. Help me to express love. I ask it in Christ – AMEN.

SHARING FAITH

“Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge”.

Psalm 62:8 NIV

Sixty or so years ago there was a song on the hit parade entitled “Secret Love”. In it there was a line that went, “All at once my secret love became impatient to be free”. Romantic love has to give itself to the loved one by its very nature.

It is the same with faith. When a person comes to know God there is an inner compulsion to tell the good news abroad. The psalmist, having found renewal, salvation and security in God, and having stood up to his enemies through the strength God gave him, and having found hope in God, now has something to tell other people about. He calls on those who worship with him to try this God out. “Trust in him at all times, O people”, he calls. Not just the good times, nor just the tough times when your back is to the wall. Behind this appeal is the experience of the psalmist. “He has been my salvation, peace, security and hope. He can do the same for you”.

The Christian’s faith is a sharing faith too. When Jesus met Andrew, the Bible says, “The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (Jn 1:41 NIV). The greatest thing you can do for anyone else is to introduce them to Jesus Christ. He can become the pattern for wholesome living for them as he has for you. God’s greatest gift to anyone is the gift of himself and you can pass that gift on by sharing your faith.
