Dear fellow pray-er,

Prayer Diary for the period Monday 10th January to 26th February.

A new year and a good place to start “In the beginning God” - so the Book of Genesis begins. It reminds us that this is God’s world and is an account of the creation of the world, the early history of humanity, Israel’s ancestors and the origins of the Jewish people.

We see evidence of evil arriving to spoil all that was good, follow the story of Noah and God’s first covenant with mankind following the flood and the sign he gave of the covenant – the rainbow. Then on to Abram, God’s covenant with him, his new name – Abraham - the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah – the birth of Isaac and Abraham’s test when he offers his son Isaac as a sacrifice to God. 

The narrative continues with Abraham sending his servant to find a wife for Isaac and Isaac’s marriage to Rebekah and the birth of Esau and Jacob. This leads to the marriage of Leah and Rachel to Jacob and the birth of the 12 sons and a daughter to Jacob.

The New Testament readings continue through Matthew’s Gospel with Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem on a donkey his subsequent arrest, crucifixion and resurrection and finally his Great Commission reminding us to go out and share the Gospel with all people.

We then read Paul’s first letter to Timothy - who is in Ephesus – encouraging him to stick to the simple truths of the Gospel and giving advice and instructions, which we all might well heed for ourselves. 

As you read, may the Lord bless you richly and fill you with his grace and love.
