The Endgame Has Begun

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
They spoke against their God and said, 
Can even God provide 
a table in the wilderness 
that we may be supplied?
 —Psalm 78:19
Suggested tune: Detroit (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it wanders through waterless regions looking for a resting place, but not finding any, it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ When it comes, it finds it swept and put in order.
—Luke 11:24-25
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
In Jesus the work of God has moved up a level; the endgame has begun.
 —R.T. France
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
When I pray for the coming of your kingdom, O God, help me not to be discouraged by the evil that surrounds me. The prayers of your people, already answered in the life, death, and resurrection of your Son, are even now being answered in new ways, even though they remain unseen for a time...
 
YOUR OWN PRAYERS
Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
