Unfailing Love… – May the prayer of our hearts for this week be: Lord, help us to live in Your unfailing love every day! Help us to establish our feet on The Rock that is the truth of Your Word. Help us to obediently trust You with all our concerns – grateful to know that our lives have been purposed and planned by You. Revive our hearts and renew our minds as we put our hope in You, Lord Jesus. Thank You for loving us and showing us how to love others. Help us to be Godly friends – shining Your light into a dark and desperate world. Father God, thank You for the new life You give to us through Jesus. Amen. (Psalm 85:6-7)
Building Strong Foundations… – We are here to build the kingdom of God – not just in our own strength, but alongside those our Heavenly Father has placed in our lives. We need to remember that nothing could ever separate us from the love and faithfulness of our Lord. This will help us to build walls of faith that will sustain us during difficult times. As we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus (our chief cornerstone), let’s trust Him for a heart of wisdom and gratitude. Let’s use words that build strong foundations in our lives and in the lives of those around us. (Ephesians 2:20-22)
Lord, we bring You our families… - I like this definition of family: “A group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation”. God created us as relational beings. He loves us unconditionally, and we can extend that love and care to those around us. Family unity and loving relationships are key ways in which we can display our Father’s heart to a lost world. May we choose to put God at the centre, as our strong foundation. He is the source of our love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and discipline when it comes to our home life. (Joshua 24:15)
THERE IS WHOLENESS IN UNITY - What is your definition of family, wholeness and unity? Who can you include as part of your “doing life together” inner group?
