A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

When reading our children’s book on the History of Great Britain one day, I was horrified to discover that a third of the world’s population perished in the Black Plague. It was seriously apocalyptic![a] Few of us have experienced a real plague of significant scale. Our fears are likely to be the modern-day “plague” of cancer, divorce, or wars that we can’t seem to eradicate.

THE LORD’S PRAYER:

  1. Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”
It’s good to praise You Lord, and make music to Your Name, O Most High. I want to proclaim Your love in the morning and Your faithfulness at night! [Psalm 92:1-2]
  1. Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”
  • The World: Pray for the changes in Europe[c]
  • Your Country: Teachers and those training our children
  • Yourself: Your “Daily Bread”
  • Your concerns for today
Father, give attention to Your servant’s prayer and plea for mercy. Hear the cry and the prayer that I’m praying in Your presence today. [2 Chronicles 6:19]
  1. Admit: “…Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”
Jesus said: “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I AM gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” [Matthew 11:29-30]
  1. Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but delivers us from evil.”
Sovereign Lord, You’ve begun to show to me Your greatness and Your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do the deeds and mighty works that You do? [Deuteronomy 3:24]

“For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”
