Reading and Prayer -Wednesday November 25

Do you ever think about that – that the message of the Gospel and the words of Jesus, are actually God’s word – a living, dynamic force which us at work within and through us? Paul did!

1 Thessalonians 2:13

And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.

Prayer

Almighty God,

We thank you for the gift of your Holy Word.

May it be a lantern to our feet, A light to our paths, and a strength to our lives.

Take us and use us to love and serve all people

in the power of the Holy Spirit,

and in the name of your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Lord, help your Church throughout the world to read your Word,

to pray your Word and practice your Word.

Amen.
