Pews News prayers for week commencing Sunday 8th July 2018
10.30am PARISH MASS
‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.’ John 8:31 NKJV
John writes, ‘I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.’ (3 John 1:2) In order to ‘prosper’, reading God’s Word must be one of our priorities each day. Jesus said, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.’ To ‘abide’ means to reside in a certain place. It makes us think of home, the place where you find joy, acceptance, encouragement, support, protection, purpose, identity, and rest. To ‘treasure’ God’s Word means to accept it as your highest authority, your compass for direction, your counsellor in making decisions, your benchmark for evaluating every relationship and action. In other words, the first and last word in your life. Many of our troubles occur because we base our choices on unreliable authorities that come from within us rather than from God. What we need is a perfect standard that will never lead us in the wrong direction, and only God’s Word meets that criteria. Solomon wrote, ‘Every word of God is flawless.’ (Proverbs 30:5 NIV) That means when His Word tells us to do something, we need to do it whether or not it
makes sense to us, and whether or not we feel like doing it.!! [Taken from “Word for Today” Daily Reflections]
In our prayers this week:
- As schools finish for the summer holiday soon, we pray for all families with school-age children. We thank God for the rest and fun that many children will enjoy this summer. We pray for families for whom the extended holiday can bring extra tension, conflict or hardship.
- We pray for safe travel for all those going on holidays this summer. The residents of Humphris Street
We pray for the sick
We pray for the departed
