Prayer and Reflection | Week 7

Miranda leads us in Week 7 of our prayer and reflection which will continue all the way to Christmas. This week’s passages:-

“Please, Lord, hear my prayer and give me the understanding that comes from your word.” 

Psalms 119:169 CEVDCI 

“Restore us, O Lord, and bring us back to you again! Give us back the joys we once had!” 

Lamentations 5:21 NLT 

“The Lord has given me a strong warning not to think like everyone else does. He said, “Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do, and don’t live in dread of what frightens them. Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble. He will keep you safe… 

Isaiah 8:11-14 NLT 

““You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule. “You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you. “You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought. “You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat. “You’re blessed when you care. At the moment of being ‘care-full,’ you find yourselves cared for. “You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world. “You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.” 

Matthew 5:3-9 MSG 

“He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” 

2 Corinthians 1:4 NLT 

“Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.” 

Colossians 3:2-3 NLT 

“The Lord said, “I will go with you and give you peace.”” 

Exodus 33:14 CEVDCI
