FEB. 26, DAY 8: BE HOLY

Greetings, Beloved--

God is alive and is our present Helper! May those words reach the innermost part of your being. Today our focus word is holiness. To be holy is to be set apart and designated for divine use. As living sanctuaries and holy vessels, we are to be set apart for God. If we are then holy vessels/living sanctuaries, how must we worship God today? What can hinder your praise - not calamity, not injustice, not sickness, not sin. One may wonder, how sinful people (all people) can become a pure place of praise. Only by God's grace and cleansing power, can we do any good thing. By the grace of God and a heart to overcome all evil, humanity can become a place of worship. Worship and give God praise in this moment for grace, mercy, and forgiveness. Worship God by caring for those in need. Advocate for persons denied justice . God is with us and will never leave us nor forsake us. Thanks be to God!

Let us pray,

God, we give You thanks for Your loving kindness and mercy. We lift before You every persecuted and hurting person, especially our Assyrian sisters and brothers. For every person who is grieving or in need, we pray. Transform us into living sanctuaries and remind all of Your presence and work in the world. You are holy and You have called us to be Your holy work in the world. Use us for Your glory and work inspite of us. Let Thy will be done in Jesus' Name, we pray. Amen.

Join us in corporate prayer Monday through Saturday through April 4 from 6-6:-15 AM. The dial-in number is 1-712-432-1500, Access Code: 621470#. God hears every prayer!

FEB. 25, DAY 7: THOUGHTS CAN BECOME WORDS

Greetings, Beloved--

This is a new day with new mercies. God is alive and is able to exceed our greatest expectations. Today, our focus is on the power of our thought life. Our thoughts can become words and our words can produce life or death propelled actions.  Are your thoughts primarily life giving? Examine your thought life today and then make a plan of action to think and speak words of life. Plan to overcome negativity wherever it grows. Practice optimism and find phrases to rebut negativity with a preposition. For example - I may not be the wealthiest person in the world; but, I am child of God and I am rich! Our thoughts can direct our actions and our actions can benefit or hinder our lives. Think well...

Let us pray,

God, we thank You for Your presence in our lives and we thank You for giving us the Words of Life. May your Words be in our mouths and thoughts. We love You and live to worship You. Amen.

What comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this can defile a person. - Matthew 15:18, ESV

FEB. 24, DAY 6: AUTHENTIC LOVE

Greetings, Beloved--

May the grace and peace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be yours. Today is a day of new beginnings. May the mercies of God be new in each one of us. Today, our focus topic is authentic or genuine love. In Romans. 12:9, the Apostle Paul states that one of the marks of the true Christian is genuine or authentic love. What does that look like in you? How is it different from simple love? What needs to change in you so that you are able to love (even your enemies)? Today, is another day to love. Love with everything in you and allow someone to love you. God loves You! May God forever be praised.

Let us pray,

God, You are pure love. You care about every person in creation and You care about us. Thank you for Your love and for continually calling us to love as You love us. Teach us how to be Your love at work in the world. Let Thy will be done...Amen.

FEB. 23, DAY 5: PAY ATTENTION TO THE VOICE OF THE LORD

Greetings, Beloved--

All around you, God is working. God is healing. God is rescuing someone. God is serving and caring for those in need. God is redeeming someone. Could it be you? Could it be that God is calling you to partner in God's miraculous works? Pay attention and partner in miracles today. Remember, God is omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing), and omnipresent (ever present). That's enough to be inspired to pay attention, beloved. If someone is testing your patience, take a deep breath and know that you just may be called to partner in a miracle. I know the word "miracle" may be a difficult term to embrace. But, the etymology of this word points us to the root of this Middle English/Latin/French term which is "wonder." Therefore, a miracle is a wondrous work of God. Look for wonder and there you will find God. Observe suffering and there you will find wonder. Look within and there you you will find it...Ask for divine wisdom and guidance. God will lead us every step of the way.

Let us pray,

Thank you, Lord. We trust in You and we recognize that you are already here. Breathe upon creation and transform us into instruments of your glory and wonder. Let thy will be done... Amen.

"God sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the broke hearted, to proclaim Liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor..." Isaiah 61:1b-2

FEB. 21, DAY 4: REST

 

Greetings, Beloved--

What does it mean to rest? On this Saturday morning, I pray that you are able to rest - rest from worry, rest from busyness, rest from being superman/superwoman. Take the time to rest from being a rescuer. Take the time today to be centered in the perfect love of God and allow God to restore your soul. How? By asking for God's help...

Let us pray,

Gracious and wonderful God, we give you thanks for this new day. We thank you for your mercy. And, we thank you for another opportunity to do your will. Thank you for Sabbath rest and spiritual renewal. Teach us how to rest in You. Lead us beside still waters and restore our souls in Jesus' Name, we pray. Amen.
