Wholeness – 9th January 2016

Lord, I pray for people who are ill today. Remind them that Jesus is the divine physician whatever their medical advisers may do. Jesus, touch them as you touched lepers in Galilee, and bring them back to wholeness, I pray. Help them to have faith in you. In Jesus’ name.  AMEN.

Leadership – 8th January 2016

Lord, I pray today for my country. May those in national leadership positions be fully aware of the responsibilities they carry. Help them to make wise decisions. Give them vision, and enable them to know that in the end they are accountable to you. In Christ’s name I ask it.  AMEN.

Police Officers – 7th January 2016

Lord God I pray today for police officers as they go about their duties. Protect them from harm, and help them to keep calm in all situations. Bless their loved ones waiting at home, fearful of what might happen to them. Help them to cherish each other. In Jesus’ name I ask it. AMEN.

WHAT SOME SAY

“On the way he asked them, ‘Tell me, who do people say I am?’ ‘Some say that you are John the Baptist’, they answered; others say that you are Elijah, while others say that you are one of the prophets’”

Mark 8:27, 28 GNB

Jesus has been one of the most puzzling people in history. There have been great military  leaders – but he was not one. There have been great philosophers – but he was not one of them. There have been great politicians – but he was not one of them. Some have amassed great wealth – but not him. Some have explored unknown territories – but he didn’t. Some have invented marvellous machines and tools – but he didn’t. He was a simple Galilean carpenter, ostracised by the religious leaders of his day, and feared by some of the politicians. But today the religion he founded is the largest religion in the world and he has followers in every country.

He did not fit into the roles the people of his day expected him to. He was a prophet – but so much more. And he died so young just when his movement was starting to get going. John the Baptist had drawn quite a following until his untimely death – maybe Jesus was John come back to life? And the disciples referred to other popular guesses that were being suggested. Very few, if any, said that he was the Son of God.

We must always be careful not to let modern interpretations drag us away from the true identity of Jesus. He was the Son of God then and he is now. He always will be. Saviour, Lord, the Good Shepherd, King of Kings, the Great High Priest, the Divine Physician, the friend of sinners – all these say who he is.

PRAYER THOUGHT

Jesus, I say you are Lord, God and Saviour.
