Evening Prayer

STRENGTHENED THROUGH THE WORD 
Psalm 119:25, 28, 92, 107

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

May the Word of God sustain you through difficult times. I pray that you will not be discouraged by the circumstance you are in, but fix your eyes on the eternal promises of God in His Word. From His Word, may you receive the assurances of rest and restoration for His people. I pray that you will be strenghtened with His promises of healing, prosperity and abundance. I pray that you will let these promises restore your strength and your hope. May you be assured, knowing that not a single one of His promises has ever failed.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Daily Quiet Time

Come up in the morning … and present thyself unto me in the top of the mount.

~  Exod 34:2

The morning is the time fixed for my meeting the Lord. This very word morning is as a cluster of rich grapes. Let me crush them, and drink the sacred wine.

In the morning! Then God means me to be at my best in strength and hope. I have not to climb in my weakness. In the night I have buried yesterday’s fatigue, and in the morning I take a new lease of energy.

Sweet morning! There is hope in its music. Blessed is the day whose morning is sanctified! Successful is the day whose first victory was won in prayer! Holy is the day whose dawn finds thee on the top of the mount! Health is established in the morning. Wealth is won in the morning. The light is brightest in the morning. “Wake, psaltery and harp; I myself will awake early.”

~ Joseph Parker

Evening Prayer

MIND OF CHRIST 
Matthew 16:23; Romans 12:2; 1 Corinthians 2:16

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you may have the mind of Christ. May you not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. I pray that your mind will be consumed with the things of God and not of men. May you fix your gaze on eternal, not on temporal things. May you always think of what is true, right, admirable and praiseworthy. I pray that as you read God’s Word, you will know His will and renew your mind. May you think God’s thoughts and live according to His Word.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

True Humility

True humility and fear of the Lord lead to riches, honor, and long life.
~ Proverbs 22:4

Do you deny the gifts that God has given you? True humility recognizes that you possess gifts, however you give credit to the One who has made you instead of taking the credit for yourself. How would you like it if you gave a very special gift to someone and they refused it? Tweak your humility to recognize God.

Our Daily Walk

Walking In God’s Ways And Paths

Shew me Thy ways, O Lord; Teach me Thy paths.

~ Ps 25:4

He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths.

~ Mic 4:2

There is a clear difference between a Way and a Path. The one is filled with the throb and stir of the world’s life; the other is comparatively lonely and unfrequented. The roll of vehicles and noisy traffic fills the one, whilst the other is, for the most part, trodden by the individual, being too narrow and quiet for the crowd. It is a great comfort that God has paths as well as ways.

God’s Ways are the great principles on which He acts, the mighty thoroughfares of Creation, Providence, Revelation, Human History, and final Judgment. On these His goings-forth have ever been of old, even from everlasting. To know them is the passionate desire of the purest and loftiest natures. Moses prayed: “Shew me now Thy ways, that I may know Thee,” and God graciously granted his request, for to Moses He made known His Ways, but to Israel only His Acts. There is need for us all to know God’s Ways, especially in this momentous era; because only so can we enter into His rest. In the Old and New Testaments the same warning is repeated: “they shall not enter into My rest, because they have not known My ways” (Psa 95:11; Heb 3:10). We can look out calmly on this troubled world when once we have learnt to know the divine programme of gathering up all things in Christ, who is the Head; when we walk with Him who is the Way to God (Joh 14:6).

The Paths of the Lord may be taken to describe His personal dealings with the individual, who through sickness, or the care of others, or by lonely duty, is isolated from the ordinary worship of the Church, and shut away from fellowship and Christian Ministry. All such may expect and reckon upon the saving help which will come through God’s private communications.

God is faithful to the soul that utterly trusts Him. He always comes on time, not a moment before, nor a moment too late. Remember that all His Paths are Mercy and Truth. Dare to believe that He is coming along a secret pathway to bring the assurance of His mercy and grace to help in this time of need.

Be with me, Lord, as I step out on the untrodden way of this month. I know not what it may bring of joy or sorrow, of temptation or service; but I humbly commit myself and my way to Thee. Make the best that Thou canst of me for Thy glory. Amen.
