Online Ministry for the Week 0108 - 0114 2017

PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION

    Open our ears, O God, that we might hear your Word speaking to us in this moment. Open our ears, O God, that we might listen for your voice calling to us through scripture. Open our ears, O God, that we might understand your promises to followers both old and young, ancient and modern. Open our hearts, O God, that we might enter into the love you offer us. Amen.

    Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18

    139:1 O LORD, you have searched me and known me.
    139:2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away.
    139:3 You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
    139:4 Even before a word is on my tongue, O LORD, you know it completely.
    139:5 You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.
    139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is so high that I cannot attain it.
    139:13 For it was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
    139:14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. 
    Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.
    139:15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, 
    intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
    139:16 Your eyes beheld my unformed substance. In your book were written 
    all the days that were formed for me, when none of them as yet existed.
    139:17 How weighty to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
    139:18 I try to count them -- they are more than the sand; I come to the end -- 
    I am still with you.

    ABUNDANT HEALTH

    Building Your Heart
    For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, 
    holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:8 (NIV)

    Your heart is a muscle, so when you challenge it, it will adapt and become stronger. 
    Strengthen your heart as well as become young at heart by making active games 
    and aerobic activities a part of your weekly routine.
    —Exercise Physiologist Sean Foy

    PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING

    God of wisdom, we are amazed that you know everything and understand everyone. 
    Long ago, you established your plans to redeem the world from our sin. 
    Your prophets prepared the way for Jesus, who lived as a teacher and healer, 
    embodying your righteousness and grace. Help us to grow in maturity as disciples 
    who follow Christ with trusting hearts. Amen.
