We are a chosen race, a royal priesthood,
a dedicated nation;
we are a people claimed by God
to proclaim the triumphs of Christ.
New Testament Reading - Beacon Lights for Christ
14In everything you do, stay away from complaining and arguing 15so that no one can speak a word of blame against you. You are to live clean, innocent lives as children of God in a dark world full of people who are crooked and stubborn. Shine out among them like beacon lights, 16holding out to them the Word of Life.
Then when Christ returns, how glad I will be that my work among you was so worthwhile.. . . . . Philippians 2:14-16
Pray for 5 people on your heart ending with the prayer below.
We pray for… those in need:
those who suffer;
the lonely; the unloved;
those who grieve; and those who care for them…
Comfort and heal, merciful Lord,
all who are in sorrow, need, sickness, or any other trouble.
Give them a firm trust in your goodness;
help those who minister to them;
and bring us all into the joy of your salvation.
Father, hear our prayer,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
