2 Jeremiah 9:23-24
“Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord.”
- Give thanks that we live and move and have our being in Christ, who came and lived amongst us, who died our death and lives forever more. To Him be all praise and glory. Give thanks for the fellowship that we enjoy in this church as we praise and worship the Lord.
- Pray for those who may be suffering the pressure of living in a fallen world… Those with illnesses; those experiencing family concerns; those who are mourning the loss of a loved one. We offer the brokenness of their feelings into the hands of the Lord’s divine healing, unconditional love and forgiveness.
- Pray for those in the Middle East… for the oppressed and troubled. Many of them have cause for hate. Pray that the Lord would set them free from hate and that one day they may see the glory of the victory of Christ. Pray for peace and stability to that region.
- Pray for those who minister at Beecroft… Andy and Rosemary, Chris, Mark and Sun Jing. That the Lord would bless them with His wisdom from above. That He would protect their family and prayer life and guide them in the quietness of their studies as they call upon the Lord.
- Give thanks for the Reformation, for Martin Luther and others throughout history who have stood strong for the truth of God’s inspired word.
- Pray for Christians who are persecuted throughout the world. That they, too, may be encouraged in the Scriptures and persevere under the protection of our Lord.
