Evening prayer – June 8, 2018

 

Silence and Centering    

“Be still, and know that I am God; – Psalm 46:10

 Confession:

Heavenly Father. we praise you for adopting us as your children

and making us heirs of eternal life  in your Son Jesus Christ,

who has freed us from our sins by his blood.

Yet we still fail to love you with all our heart, or serve you as we ought.

Pardon our offences, we pray, and make us clean,

that we may continue as members of Christ,  in whom alone is salvation. Amen.

PAUSE FOR  2 MINUTES OF SILENCE

Reading & Devotional:

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What do you think about? Where do you fix your thoughts? God expects us to consider what we think and judge it according to His word. Trouble comes into our life and we begin to fear. When it does, we have a choice to make. Will we remain in fear? Will we let it escalate into panic? Or will we obey today’s passage and trust in God, fixing our thoughts on Him? When we do, He promises us peace. Not just any peace, His perfect peace. It is the same way with anger, jealously, doubt and a hundred other thoughts that come into our life every day. Today, when negative thoughts come to your mind, begin a new habit. Trade them in for peace. How? By giving the thoughts to God and then choose to trust in Him by fixing your thoughts on His love for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me trade my negative thinking for Your perfect peace. Today, help me to fix all my thoughts on You. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

PAUSE FOR  2 MINUTES OF SILENCE

The Our Father (slowly pray this)
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever, Amen.
