Call to Prayer
We invite you to continue praying for the needs of one another, our churches, our community, our nation, and our world.
Prayer and Scripture shared by Pastor Tim:
Dear God, we are so incredibly in need of your power and your strength. We ask that you would fill us with your Spirit of love and unity among believers all around our world. We ask for your help to set aside our differences and look to the greater cause, the cause of Christ. Please help us to truly live out a life of love. We know that is only possible through the power of you Spirit, so we ask that you would move across our church in miraculous ways, with fresh filling and awareness, turning your people back to you, drawing others to come to know you. We need your unity and your love to stir our hearts and give direction to our days We need your wisdom to guide us, we need your Spirit to lead us, to live out godly lives that would bring honor first to you. We thank you that you are always with us and give us great purpose and hope. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Ephesians 4: 1-3
What would it look like for me to live out a life of love? What does God’s vision of unity look like, and how does that differ from my own understanding of unity? What word or phrase in the passage of scripture from Ephesians catches your attention? What is it that Spirit may be conveying to you through the Word?
Faith & Family
Join Pastor Abby each Wednesday at 5:30 on Facebook Live for Faith and Family. During the month of January we will be exploring the many ways to pray.
This week’s prayer practice for families: Mealtime Prayers
Praying before you eat is a great prayer practice to involve the whole family. Even very littles can say a simple thank you prayer for their food. How many different mealtime blessings do you know? There’s the classic, “God is Great,” and my personal favorite, “Johnny Appleseed.” This is a fairly simple thing to Google search or watch on YouTube. I encourage you to broaden your mealtime blessings, and come up with a creative way to cycle through them while learning some new blessings. One suggestion is to take a cube-shaped box, and write the words of a blessing or name of blessing on each side. Roll the cube at mealtime and whichever blessing lands facing up, you pray together. Or you can write each person’s name on the cube, roll it and the name that lands face up offers their own prayer. Regardless of how you incorporate mealtime blessings, it is a great way to remember to thank God for the food we have and to pray for those who do not have enough. It also helps to establish a habit that children (and adults) will take with them through their lives.
