A Morning Prayer

In our Bible reading together we have recently been going through the life of the prophet Samuel and how he was instructed to anoint Saul as king over Israel. We encounter Saul as a nice young man full of hope and potential. How sad it is that once given high position and the blessings of God that he soon failed, broke Samuel’s heart and missed the path that God wanted him to walk.

Saul’s failure was that, while he was respectful and well liked, he never had a personal connection with God. He was always just trying his best to serve Samuel’s God. How different the heart of David, who longed to know and serve God long before he was called to be king. Watching over his father’s sheep while he was still a teenager, David prayed to really know God and learn the path God wanted him to walk. Sure David had plenty of his own failures but he never stopped longing to know and please God. These verses from Psalm 25 are often central to my own morning prayers. A few years back I wrote this song based on those verses and I pray the words and music may awaken your own hearts to really seek God and His ways today. Only He knows the path on which each of us are called to walk today!

Outdoor Prayer at Sunshine

Thank you for those who prayed for our event. Here is our opening song at this prayer and praise meeting that surprisingly lasted over an hour without anyone looking at their watch! There was some hand clapping and some tears. There were some with hands raised and others singing from behind their masks. But whatever the expression of praise I know for a certainty that Jesus was delighted and by faith came walking in our midst.

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:20

Irish Blessing

In these days of social distancing we’ve been blessed with many different videos created separately and blended in studio. This one from Ireland is definitely unique and shares the best not only of Ireland but of every people everywhere who through the blood of Jesus are made as one. Have a blessed day.
