- As the men called out to Jesus, others shouted at them to be quiet. Are there influences in your life that still prevent you from a deeper relationship with Jesus?
- Do you know someone who worries about following Jesus for fear of what others may think or say? Pray for them today.
- Is there a particular verse or phrase that speaks to you today? Repeat it slowly to yourself and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you through it.
Please include in your prayers:
- the refugees and the European response to their needs
Eternal God, Light of the nations,
in Christ you make all things new:
guide our nation in the coming days through the inspiration of your Spirit,
that understanding may put an end to discord and all bitterness.
Give us grace to rebuild bonds of trust
that together we may work for the dignity and flourishing of all;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
