Daily Devotion for November 12, 2014

And now, for something completely different . . . .



179 people in our community are currently praying with you.

Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever.


Prayer of Thanks for God's Creation

O  Lord God of Israel and God of the nations, you are the only God in heaven above or the earth below. I walk before you with all my heart. I bless your name in the morning when I rise and in the evening when I sleep, and all the day when your creation fills my eye. Bless me to remember you this day. When I see and hear the thousand miracles of your creation, let me see them anew, recalling that you have made them, and no other; that I may live in your presence among the common miracles I take for granted. Through Christ I pray,


Prayer for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Christ Jesus, before ascending into heaven, You promised to send the Holy Spirit to Your apostles and disciples. Grant that the same Spirit may perfect in my life the work of Your grace and love, and that I may bear my cross with You and, with courage, overcome the obstacles that interfere with my salvation; Teach me to be Your faithful disciple and animate me in every way with Your Spirit.



[Letting the Holy Spirit perfect our hearts in grace and love.]


May I go in peace, with God and with his other children, and may we love one another as Christ taught us. May I follow the example of good men of old, and may God comfort and help me and all who believe in Him, both in this world and in the world which is to come.


(Additional prayers may be found at Prayers for All Occasions.)
God be with you 'til we meet again.

Notes on the Scripture

You can probably figure out why the notes on the “Scripture” are in the left hand column today. With the constant study of Paul, we are going to need some relief from time to time, and we have decided to make Wednesday a special day, when we do something creative. Last Wednesday, we did have a Bible verse in the Scripture section, but the main focus was on the poem Love by George Herbert. Today, we wanted to show this fabulous graphic off!

So here is our schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday: Our primary study of Paul's Epistles. Saturday, a normal Scripture and Notes, but non-Pauline, and usually non-epistolary. Sunday, Scripture and Commentary from Dr. Ken Boa (currently doing the Epistle of James). And on Wednesday — with apologies to Monty Python — something completely different! The Prayer and music sections will remain in normal format.

Special seasons will be treated specially, as always: Thanksgiving Day (U.S.), Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and the occasional special feast day.

Memory Verse

~ 1 John 2:15-17: Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

Here is the link to the full-size, full-resolution file of the Bible Book graphic in today's Devotion.

It is a very large file. If anyone wants to have something made from it, I would suggest saving it to a thumb drive and taking it to a printer.

Today is the third time I read every chapter in the Bible but the first time I understood every word I read. Thank you for the banner, Mason. I wish it was for sale so I could hang it on my wall!

We get a lot of nice comments, both here and by email, but this might be the nicest one ever. Thanks for the encouragement! I will put the graphic up in full size so that people who want to can download it. I'm sure that a professional printer could do something nice with it. But at readable size, it would be about 3" wide by almost a yard tall! The native resolution is actually 10 inches wide by 12 feet high. Or you could print sections of it onto heavy slick paper for bookmarks. It ... Read More
