Celtic Daily Devotions April 2016
God sacrificed Jesus on the altar of the world to clear that world of sin.
Having faith in him sets us in the clear.
Romans 3 v 25 (The Message)
As we move onwards from Easter you are encouraged to take time each day and use the devotional guide provided online or in the church magazine – when we travel through ROMANS for this month. It is one of Paul’s great letters to other believers and full of truly great truths for those who are in Christ Jesus.
It is one way to feed on God’s Word in the morning, at midday and in the evening….. to Pray with Him continually through your day…
and even to share with others the treasures or hurdles you discover.
The Church website and Facebook page (even on a handy mobile) provide a fuller daily devotional page. However it all follows the pattern below which the information overleaf fits into, based on the Kirk’s origins of the Celtic and Northumbrian traditions.

Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be Your Name.
Your kingdom come
Your 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.
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory.
For ever and ever
