Morning Prayer: Tuesday, 06 June – Acts 2:42-47 ~ life together

Morning Prayer

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Opening Prayer

Guide us, O God, by your Word, and Holy Spirit, that in your light we may see light, in your truth find freedom, and in your will discover peace; through Christ our Lord.

Reading: Acts 2:42-47 (NLT)

All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.

A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity — all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.

Reflection and Prayer:

Lord Jesus: you are the head and we are the body, revive your church and fill us with the same love and passion as the early believers.

+ Give us a persistent hunger for your word – that our lives may be conformed to your teaching.
+ Give us a sincere love for one another – that we may seek opportunities to befriend and serve one another.
+ Give us a passion for unity – that we may set aside our differences and eat together at a common table.
+ Give us a lifestyle of prayer – that you may constantly be on our hearts and minds, guiding what we do and say.

Holy Spirit: fall again on your church throughout the world.

+ Manifest your presence among us through signs and wonders.
+ Make us a generous, freely-giving people that take care of one another.
+ Transform our worship from religious ritual to joy-filled praise in your presence.
+ Keep us in the world as respected citizens and gracious ambassadors of your Kingdom.

Heavenly Father: we ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
