March 10 Devotional

Opening Prayer: God unto whom all hearts are open and unto whom every will speaks, and from whom no secret thing is hidden, I pray You to cleanse the intent of my heart with the ineffable gift of Your grace, that I may perfectly love You, and worthily praise You. Amen. - The Cloud of Unknowing

Scripture Reading for the Day: Isaiah 1:18-20

Journal: How do the words willing and obedient strike you today? What is the relationship between the two? How well do they describe your life these days? 

Reflection: No man receives a word from God without instantly being put to the test by it. We disobey and then wonder why we don’t go on spiritually. (My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers)

Hymn for the Day

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself

T recently left a career in engineering to join SEED Company (an affiliate organization of Wycliffe Bible Translators) in their mission to promote and accelerate Bible translation that is being done by indigenous churches and organizations in their home countries. As a Field Coordinator T seeks to form and foster relationships with these partners by acting as a liaison between them and SEED Company. The vision of SEED Company is to see God’s Word available in languages where it currently is not. Pray today for T and his wife L as they begin this new work.

Arab World Media clearly presents Jesus Christ to the Arab world audiences. This is done by recording scriptures, Bible stories, sermons, and Arabic Christian music for broadcast by partner agencies for outreach and for the encouragement of Arab world believers. Pray today for the staff of this ministry.

Closing Prayer: Lord God, make us willing and obedient this day, that we might eat the fruit of salvation, to the glory of your name. Amen.
