Daily Prayer for July 9

blue violets

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. Ephesians 3:14–17a, NIV

Lord our God, you are our Father, and we human beings know that our innermost hearts belong to you. Hold us firmly through your Spirit, we pray, so that we do not live on the level of our lower natures but remain true to the calling you have given us, the high calling to what is eternal. May all our experiences work in us for good, bringing us the joyful certainty that you rule us with your Spirit, that you further the good everywhere in the world and make more and more people sensitive to what is good, right, and perfect. Amen.

Weekly Meanderings, 7 July 2018

A week with a holiday in the middle mixes up a life a bit. In a good way, but we were wondering in this house all week long what day it was, but today’s Saturday and here are some fun Meanderings for your coffee time. This is what I can do in retirement, but I’ll […]

Daily Prayer for July 3

Purple morning glory flower

In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy – being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:4-6

Dear Father in heaven, we thank you for the work you are doing. We thank you for working through people of all kinds and of all vocations and through the many hearts that know your goodness. We thank you for the great work led by the Lord Jesus, who will overcome the world with patience and with gentleness. He will overcome the world, opening the door wide for all, including the poorest of the poor, to come to you, their Father in heaven. Grant that with the light we have been given we may remain firm and true. Do not let us come into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours forever. Amen.

JESUS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT – IN THE BEGINNING – PART 6 OF 7

July 1, 2018

2 Corinthians 13
1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. 2 I told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now I write to them which heretofore have sinned, and to all other, that, if I come again, I will not spare: 3 Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.

Our Biggest Stumbling Block (RJS)

I’ve been quite busy this last week – so I’m posting a lightly edited repeat of an older post. This is one I really think we need to take to heart. Quite awhile ago now Alister McGrath published a short book well worth reading: Doubting: Growing Through the Uncertainties of Faith. At one point in […]

Weekly Meanderings, 23 June 2018

This troll is looking down onto Northern Seminary, and as I sit in my office he’s/she’s looking down at me! Which I had flying home from Istanbul, having started the day in Rome: If you sit at a desk all day, you may experience vague discomfort and pain where you sit. Doctors may call this lower cross […]
