Hearing God in Scripture
Sunday, May 21, 2017
Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labour on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare.
Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David.
Isaiah 55:2-3 (NIV)
Our Prayer for this Month
Dear Lord, for the past year we’ve been coming before You each month with our unified prayers as a church body. We are so thankful for all we’ve seen You do in these months, and all we know You will continue to do for the glory of Your Name.
This month, Lord, we want to express our thankfulness to You. Thank You for hearing our prayers and for answering so many of our requests. Thank You for remembering us and freeing us from sin through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank You for providing for our needs and for being faithful to us at all times. Thank You that we can trust You because You are good!
Lord, we are so grateful. You are worthy of all honour and glory and praise. We will give thanks to You for You are good. Your love endures forever!
In Jesus’ name, amen.
