Scripture Readings: Psalm 119:33-40, I Chronicles 7, Philippians 1:21-2:11
Reflection Verse: Philippians 1:27
Prayer: Lord, I know what it is to run away from situations in fear. I also know what it is to lead out in faith. The difference, Lord, is seeing who You are and what You alone can do. Please reveal Yourself to me that my faith might grow! Almighty God, when the way is blocked before me and an army of circumstances closes in behind me, help me to stand by faith, looking to You to open a way. Lord, I want to follow You, asking You to lead me where my enemies cannot go in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Scripture Readings: Psalm 119:41-48, I Chronicles 8, Philippians 2:12-30
Reflection Verse: Philippians 2:16
Prayer: Gracious Lord, You said in Your Word that I need to reach toward those things that are ahead of me and to press on toward the goal. You have also told me in Your Word that Jesus set an example for me on how to run this race that my life has me participating in. You also tell me to hold on tightly to what I have in You, so I do lose the race and my work is not useless. Jesus had joy as He ran toward what You wanted. Give me that joy, Lord, in Him. Amen

Reflection Verse: Philippians 3:13-14
Prayer: Enable me, Lord God, to understand that I do not compete with others and that I am not measured by their expectations but only Yours. Thank You for giving me energy and strength to just stay in the race. Like the Apostle Paul, enable me to forget what is behind and strain toward what is ahead, pressing on toward the goal to win the prize for which You, Lord God, have called me to in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer: Lord God, You tell me that You supply everything I need. By this I know that if it’s important to me, it’s important to You. You are always there for me. I can count on You no matter what. I have success and I am blessed because of You. I am healed because of You. I am surrounded by people who love me and support me when I am down. Your provision is all I need. Thank You for loving me and providing for my care in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Reflection Verse: Colossians 1:16
Prayer: Father God, You are God and there is no other. You created everything – those things we can see as well as those things we can’t see. Nothing escapes Your notice because You sit in a place to see everything. I praise Your glorious name today and I count it a privilege to be Your child and to be able to serve You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
