Day 1 - Apr 6

OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE YOUR NAME.


When we declare the truth of who God is, it changes the way we view our lives. We are free to live in the truth of His character and not in the lies of what the world tells us. When we honor and meditate on the character of God we begin to notice the presence and manifestation of Him on this earth and in our lives.


God, you are gracious.

“Who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace...” - 2 Timothy 1:9


God, you are our Savior.

“...even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved.” - Ephesians 2:4-7


God, you are holy.

“And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!” - Isaiah 6:3


God, you are good.

“On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness. The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.” - Psalm 145:5-9

DAY 2 - APR 7


YOUR KINGDOM COME,

YOUR WILL BE DONE,

ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.



Come to God with a posture of humility. God, what do you want to do with us? In our families, churches, our cities, our world? We surrender our agendas to you. Your will be done. When we live in a posture of surrender we are freed from the

failing rule of our own selves. We acknowledge the Lord in His rightful place and we surrender the desire to be the ruler of our lives. When we ask for a posture of surrender we are able to be molded to His image.


We surrender our control.

"Then he said to them all: "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” - Luke 9:23


We surrender our desires/will.

“And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, ‘My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.’” - Matthew 26:39


We surrender our comfort.

“Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it.” - Luke 17:33


We surrender our thoughts.

“We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.” - 2 Corinthians 10:5


We surrender our feelings.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” - Psalm 51:10-12

DAY 3 - APR 8

GIVE US TODAY OUR DAILY BREAD.

MATTHEW 6:11 ESV


Ask for His provision in your life and the lives of others. We ask for what we need for the days approaching and for all the remainder of our lives. We acknowledge God as the giver of all good things. May we approach Him with a spirit of humility as we make known the desires of our hearts. He’s a God who sees you and hears you — a God who knows you and loves you. No

prayer is too big or too small for our God. Seek first His kingdom.


God, we humbly ask for your peace.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” - Philippians 4:6


God, we humbly ask for boldness.

“And also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel” - Ephesians 6:19


God, we humbly ask for endurance.

“let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, ” - Hebrews 12:1-2


God, we humbly ask for unity.

“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.” - Philippians 2:1-2

God, we humbly ask for people to know Truth. “That you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’” - Acts 13:47

DAY 4 - APR 9

AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION

BUT DELIVER US FROM THE EVIL ONE.

MATTHEW 6:13


As we take our next steps, ask for God to guide, lead, and protect us. Pray the noise and chaos of the world will not distract you, but the Holy Spirit would give you direction. Start with this passage:


“My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the Lord grants wisdom!

From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity. He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him. Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy. Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.”

Proverbs 2:1–11


We ask for discernment.

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” - Romans 12:2


We ask for eyes to see your Word.

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” - Joshua 1:8


We ask for council.

“Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.” - Proverbs 13:20


We ask for deliverance from condemnation.

“but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” - Romans 5:8


We ask for deliverance from ourselves.

“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” - Galatians 5:1


We ask for deliverance from evil.

“You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.” - Psalm 32:7

DAY 5 - APR 10

FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM AND THE POWER

AND THE GLORY FOREVER. AMEN.

1 CHRONICLES 29:11-12


We wrap up our week of prayer together by glorifying God again as a reminder to ourselves that God is in control. Honor Him. Worshiping the work of our gracious and merciful Father not only sets our hearts on Him, but it reminds us that our lives are not our own. Whatever season or circumstance we are in the midst of--He remains worthy of our praise and is sovereign over it all. We acknowledge that His is the power and the glory forever.


Worship in the midst of hurt.

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” - Psalm 23:4


Worship in the midst of shame.

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” - 2 Corinthians 12:9-10


Worship in the midst of lack.

“Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation." - Habakkuk 3:17-18


Worship because He knows all things.

“O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways..” - Psalm 139:1-3


Worship because He is able to do all things.

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all this within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” - Psalm 103:1-5


Worship because He is always present.

“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!…” - Psalm 107:1


IT’S IN JESUS’ NAME WE PRAY. AMEN.

easter week 2020 devotionals

Join us, every day this week, as we prepare our hearts to celebrate Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Each day we will gather to cry out to God with worship and praise, asking Him to move in big and mighty ways in our families, our church, our city and our world.


Together, at noon each day, right where we are, we will stop, read scripture and pray together, as one voice to our Father and King. Going back to the way Jesus taught us to pray in Matthew 6, we will be using a portion of the Lord’s Prayer each day as a guide for the devotional and prayer.

Hope & Help for Mental Health

We are excited to announce Miss Washtenaw 2018, Hannah Palmer as our guest speaker highlighting Mental Health Care and Suicide Prevention. While in high school, Hannah fought her own battle with depression and anxiety and has not let this define her or stand in the way of reaching for her goals. Hannah hopes sharing her story along with her experience with Mental Health First Aid will help to change the stereotyping of mental illness, encourage struggling youth and help those living and working with youth better help individuals experiencing a mental health crisis. Hannah is a lifelong Brighton resident and is attending Eastern Michigan University majoring in Elementary Education.
