February 20 Devotional
Come to Stillness: Take a few minutes to allow your mind and heart to be still before God.
Opening Prayer: O God. We give ourselves over to your care, trusting only in your infinite mercy and love. We will continue to give thanks to you, O Lord, for all that we have and all that we are. We will rest assured in the knowledge that when we cry to you in sadness or in joy you will hear our cry and make reply. Amen. (A Guide to Prayer for All Who Walk with God by Rueben P. Job, Norman Shawchuck, and John Mogabgab)
Scripture Reading for the Day: Hebrews 5:7-10
Reflection and Listening: silent and written
Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself
Carlos and Sandy Rios are planting Rivers of Grace Bible Church in the San Andres area of Guadalajara, Mexico. The church is growing and many new families have begun attending. Pray today that the members of the church will grow in their relationships with Christ and in their love for Jesus so that it overflows to others.
Closing Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for the depths of despair you were willing to go to for me. Thank you that you carried my sorrows. Thank you that you bore my sin and my pain; all so that I could be with you for all eternity. Amen.
