Strength – 10th January 2016

Lord, give me strength to carry out all the things I have to do today, whether they are big or small. If I have been putting things off, help me to get stuck in to them and find satisfaction in doing them. Show me how to express appreciation to others for their help. In Christ’s name.  AMEN.

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.

DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN

“When they joined the rest of the disciples, they saw a large crowd round them and some teachers of the Law arguing with them.”

Mark 9:14 GNB

The transfiguration of Jesus would have been one of the high points in the spiritual journey of the three disciples whom Jesus took with him. But high points not only come. They go as well. Time sweeps them into the memory banks. Like the last couple of days of a holiday, we wish we could hang on to them forever.

But the experience the disciples had undergone was extremely important. They were going to spend much of the rest of their lives preaching and teaching about Jesus. It was going be “a long haul”. There was going to be opposition, controversy, misgivings, arguments and disagreements. At times they would not know where they were going. And they would look back on those moments on the mountain, knowing that they had been wrapped in the glory of God. And that memory would send them back, inspired, uplifted, challenged and matured to carry on, to reach further, to face more difficulties and tell more people about the God who spoke on the mountain. But it would be more than a wistful backward look. It would remind them that he spoke also at Calvary, in the garden at the empty tomb, and at Pentecost. And he would speak again, not only to them, but through them. And the God who had been so real on the mountain would be just as real in the val- ley of doubt, weariness and frustration.

Cherish your mountain top experiences, in worship, in prayer, at camps or retreats. Take the God of the mountains with you. Let him accompany you – always.
