Week of 12/23-27 (B52;19)
Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV)
[ In light of God's full Counsel ... ]
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the
LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a
future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and
pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me
and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
Father God, we praise You for being so faithful through 2019.
Even so, please come Lord Jesus. Amen
Week of 12/30 - 1/3 (B1;20)
Numbers 6:24-26 (NKJV)
The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you,
and be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
and give you peace.
We offer the following three prayers in response ...
1. LORD, bring those who yet need You into new-
birth relationship with You through Your beloved
Son, Jesus Christ - Lord of lords and King of kings.
Please do so whereby they, too, can so enjoy the
huge blessings found only in the Lord Jesus as
Your New Covenant graciously continues. May
peace with God be their eternal discovery this
new year. Amen
2. LORD, bless and keep those in You who, by grace, con-
tinue in relationship with You in their new-born state. May
Your holy face shine upon them and be gracious to them.
Lift up Your countenance upon them, precious Father.
And, dear YHVH God Most High: THANK YOU for
Your holy New Covenant through Jesus Christ Your
Son. May the peace of God which passes all
understanding be our ongoing blessing through
3. LORD, soften the hearts of those who claim to be
in You but who are not abiding in Your Son. Open
their eyes to the dangers of the life they are presently
living. Help the carnal to repent of their ways, turn
and walk in Your Holy Spirit. May You grace them
with change whereby they, too, can enjoy the sweet
abundant life Your Son, our Shepherd, so kindly offers.
May Your merciful, gracious light reign over the darkness.
In Jesus Christ's glorious name we pray, amen.
Week of 1/6-10 (B2;20)
Psalm 1 (NKJV)
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of
the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits
in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law
of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also
shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which
the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not
stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation
of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the
righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Father, in a day filled with dark uncertainty, may we be
wise enough to heed the blessings of this psalm. May
we enjoy Your peace which passes all understanding
even though the events of Mt. 24:4-8 continue to
manifest themselves. LORD, we praise You for the
heavenly blessings in Christ Jesus Your glorious Son.
Thank You for Your peace which does indeed transcend
all understanding. We magnify You oh eternal YHVH God.
In Jesus Christ's - Your Son's - holy name we pray, amen.
Week of 1/13-17 (B3;20)
Psalm 2 (NKJV)
Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take
counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed,
saying, "Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away
Their cords from us." He who sites in the heavens shall laugh;
the LORD shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to
them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure:
"Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion. I will declare
the decree: The LORD has said to Me, 'You are My Son,
today I have begotton You. Ask of Me, and I will give You
the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth
for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel.'" Now
therefore, be wise O kings; be instructed, you judges of the
earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way,
when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those
who put their trust in Him.
Father God, we ADORE Thee. In Jesus Christ's holy name,
LORD, help us to revere Your glorious Son. During these
days of rebellion, help us LORD to stay the course and
remain faithful to You. Help us endure during these days
of global warfare against You and Your peoples - both Your
Old Covenant people and Your New Covenant people in
Jesus Christ Your Son. Thank You, Father God. In Christ
alone we bring appeal: Come soon Lord Jesus!
