Galatians 2:19-21

January 30, 2013

For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. (Galatians 2:19)
      Holy Spirit, please help us daily express our faith by the good works that we do, but help us all be clear that our salvation rests on what Jesus has done for us and not on what we have done for Jesus.

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; (Galatians 2:20a
      Father, please help each of us find that new life in Jesus — life where we willingly lay down our lives and receive new life in him.

and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (Galatians 2:2b0)
      Jesus, thank you for laying your life down for me so that I might live in you.

I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain. (Galatians 2:21
      Holy Trinity, One God, help us daily live out the grace that comes through faith in you. Thank you.

A word received: Pray for my peace and protection.

Preparation for the enthronement

January 30, 2013

Pour down upon the Church of England, O God, the gifts of your Holy Spirit, that those who prepare for the enthronement of the next Archbishop of Canterbury will lay that costly cornerstone, tested and firmly placed, the chief cornerstone, Christ Jesus, across every dimension of this event. Amen.

Thomas Becket’s last words

January 30, 2013

‘For the Name of Jesus and the protection of the Church I am ready to embrace death.’

Dear Heavenly Father,
May the bishops of the Church of England, especially Justin Welby, stand firm for the name of Jesus and the protection of the Church. Amen.
