Day 19

Psalm 136:1 “Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.” The psalmist remembers the stories of God’s people and how God continually showed his faithful love toward them.

Day 17

Psalm 51:10 – “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me” Occasionally all Christians need revival.

Day 16

Psalm 133:1 – “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell together in unity!” Nothing can destroy a body of believers faster than disunity.

Pray this morning for unity amongst the fellowship of Christ Community. …

Our church is …

Day 14

Psalms 146:1-2 “Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.” Placing our focus on the Lord, His goodness, His provision, His faithfulness, and the unmerited forgiveness He has extended to us through the Gospel in turn removes …

Day 13

Acts 1:8, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” How often do you consider the purpose of the Spirit’s filling? The Holy Spirit empowers us to be gospel witnesses locally, nationally, and globally. …

Day 12

1 Timothy 2:1-2, “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” It is often said that the peaceful transition of power is something that sets the U.S. …
