Week beginning Sunday 7th February 2021
The peace of Christ must control your hearts—a peace into which you were called in one body. And be thankful people. The word of Christ must live in you richly. Teach and warn each other with all wisdom by singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing to God with gratitude in your hearts. Whatever you do, whether in speech or action, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus and give thanks to God the Father through him.
You may like to use these suggestions for prayer this week.
Sunday: As we focus today on the Word (Christ) dwelling among us, we give thanks for the presence of God fully with us and the timeless love that holds all creation.
Monday: The verses above, from Colossians, encourage us to live peacefully and thankfully. Today we pray for an increasing awareness of the peace of Christ within us and among us.
Tuesday: These verses also invite us to live lives where everything we do and say stems from our relationship with God. We ask for the Holy Spirit’s help in living lives that reflect the presence of God with us.
Wednesday: ‘The word of God must live in you richly.’ Today we ask the Holy Spirit to give us a hunger and thirst to read scripture and to be led and inspired by the Holy Spirit as we read.
Thursday: As we come before God in prayer today, spend some time bringing your thanks as these verses invite us to. We may even like to sing out our thanks!
Friday: We hold before God the world spoken into being at the beginning of time, the world that Jesus came to show God’s great love for.
Saturday: Pray for our worship tomorrow.
Please join us on Facebook each day at 8am for our Bite Sized Prayers to begin each day.
Also, you may like to pause each day at 12pm with Christians all around the world who pray the Lord’s Prayer at their 12pm!! This is an ancient practice that unites us wherever we are in our unity in Christ.
