A Spirit of Power

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
He'll call on me, I'll answer him.
I will be with him still
in trouble, to deliver him,
and honor him I will.
 —Psalm 91:15
Suggested tune: Crimond (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.
—2 Timothy 1:7
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Though saints are to be humble, self-denying, submissive to the will of God, and patient in all things towards all people; yet they are not to indulge to cowardice and to a meanness of spirit; but to show firmness of mind, resolution, undaunted courage, fortitude of soul, and a strong spirit, which is not at all unbecoming the Christian
—John Gill (alt.)
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Teach us to look, in all our ends,
on thee for judge, and not our friends;
that we, with thee, may walk uncowed
by fear or favor of the crowd...
—Rudyard Kipling
 
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
