Day 13

Day 13

INTRODUCTION

We invite you to join us as we meditate, pray, and sing together, longing for God to move in reviving and saving power. 

Rather than just provide a list of Bible passages to read on a daily basis, we shall be seeking to go a little deeper and at a slower pace, so that the Scriptures can “get into” us and we can “get into” them. For the coming weeks and months, we shall be considering "A Parable A Week".

READ

Matthew 25:1-13


PONDER

Let’s look at the end of this story…Here we see the arrival of the bridegroom to collect his bride - the moment has come! Five of the girls are ready and it all begins to happen! However, the other five have gone to buy oil - at midnight! Are WE ready to go WITH - or go FOR- our Lord??


PRAY

After a moment of quietness, let the Spirit of God lead you as you pray for 5 people who you would love to see become followers of Jesus Christ, or people who you know have strayed from God. Name them before the Lord, asking God to reveal Himself to them, and that He would draw them in grace, mercy and love to trust and follow Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.  


Close your prayer time with the 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 debts, 

as we forgive our debtors. 

And lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil. 

For Thine is the kingdom, 

and the power, and the glory, 

for ever. Amen.
