‘But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God….’
1 Peter 2 verse 9            

As we continue to move through the year you are encouraged to take time each day and use the devotional guide provided – when we travel through the books of 1 & 2 TIMOTHY and 1 & 2 PETER this month. These letters from Paul and Peter were written as encouragements – to a younger man growing in his Christian life and to churches facing trying times.

The Devotions are but one way to feed on God’s Word in the morning, at midday, 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 provided fits into, based on the Kirk’s own origins of the Celtic and Northumbrian traditions.

Morning
Reading and Meditation on the theme
Prayer of response to the Word

Midday
Prayer – mostly for others

Evening
Verse(s) from the morning reading
Reflection on the day and Prayer

 

A Prayer for the Month

A Prayer for the Month of June

Holy and Gracious God
We praise and adore You
For who You are 

Loving and Merciful Saviour
We trust and follow You
Above all others 

Spirit of Truth and power
We need You
We need You 

To make us more like Jesus
That we might be holy like You are
To be pleasing to Father God
In every way 

Amen we cry out
This day and every day.
Until he comes!
Amen and amen.

Anon. 2016

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father,  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 sins, As we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory.
Now and for ever

Amen.
