Worship – 6th January 2019

Lord on this first Sunday of 2019 let your worldwide church swell with the sound of praise. And let me be part of this praising community. “Fill thou my Life, O Lord my God, in every part with praise”. Let all our worship focus on Jesus now and always. I ask it in his name – AMEN.

A new job – 5th January 2019

I pray today Lord for all people starting in new work positions this year. Give them courage as they go into new situations that will seem strange and probably threatening at first. Help them to get on well with their colleagues and to progress in their new places. I ask It in Christ – AMEN.

Illegal Trading – 4th January 2019

Lord, I bring before you the problem of illegal trading that evades the tax authorities, so robbing the legal traders of markets and denying employment to their workers and taxes to the governments. Show the authorities how to put a stop to it. In Christ’s name – AMEN

TROUBLE!

“I am in trouble, God – listen to my prayer! I am afraid of my enemies – save my life!”

Ps 64:1 GNB

In the book of Job it says, “Man is born to trouble as surely as sparks fly upward.” (Job 5:7 NIV) It only needs a cursory reading of the Book of Psalms to discover that at least one of the writers seemed to run into trouble amazingly often. At least he recognized that this aspect of his life was tailor-made for God to intervene and show his constant love, his power and his protective guidance.

The great thing in the Book of Psalms for Christian believers to grasp is that the psalmist knew the power of prayer and resorted to God through his prayer-life all the time.

Do not be unduly fazed if you too turn out to be a living proof of the truth stated in the Book of Job. You are not alone in encountering trouble on a regular basis – many people do. Tony Blair, the former British Prime Minister said that in politics you expend an awful lot of time and effort trying to solve one problem but as soon as you have found a solution another problem comes along straight away. Many people find the same seems to happen on a personal level. Life becomes one long sequence of coping with problems and trouble.

If this factor resonates with you, do what the psalmist did. Turn to God in prayer. Do not hesitate to do so. And do not stop after just one visit. Let your troubles become the foundation of your prayer life. Let them force you to Jesus to find and experience his love, his power and his hope.

FOR REFLECTION
Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged: Take it to the Lord in prayer. J.M. Scriven
