Pews News prayers for week commencing Sunday 20th January 2019

NEXT SUNDAY 27th January 2019 –Parish Mass –- Readings: (Nehemiah:1-3, 5-6,8-10; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Luke 4.14-21)  


The following devotion is one taken from ‘Jesus Calling’, a book of daily meditations by Sarah Young. The author recognises that “in many parts of the world, Christians seem to be searching for a deeper experience of Jesus’ Presence and Peace”. Her devotions aim to address that felt need:

Approach this day with awareness of who is boss.

As you make plans for the day, remember that it is I who orchestrate the events of your life. On days when things go smoothly, according to your plans, you may be unaware of My sovereign Presence. On days when your plans are thwarted, be on the lookout for Me! I may be doing something important in your life, something quite different from what you expected. It is essential at such times to stay in communication with Me, accepting My way as better than yours. Don’t try to figure out what is happening. Simply trust Me and thank Me in advance for the good that will come out of it all.

I know the plans I have for you, and they are good.

[Bible Ref: Jeremiah 29:11]
