January 16, 2011 – Morning Worship
Monday – Matthew 6:5-13 (optional end of vs. 13); Psalm 51
In the King James Version, and the margins of the other translations, it reads “for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.” Why does that fit at the end of the Lord’s prayer? And our prayers?
Tuesday – Genesis 18:22-33; Job 23:1-4
How does the idea of “pleading with God” fit into our prayers? Why or why not?
Wednesday – Exodus 32:1-14; Psalm 35:1-8, 17-21; Matthew 26:36-46
Here we see Moses, David and Jesus pleading with God. How might that change your prayer life?
Thursday – John 16:33; Romans 8:18-39; II Corinthians 4:7-18; Hebrews 12:1-3
“For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever amen” is a doxology that expresses our hope. In what way? Why do we have such hope in this world filled with trouble?
Friday – Genesis 21:1-7; Exodus 14; Ephesians 3:20-21
When praying the Lord’s prayer (or any prayer) it helps to remember that “with God all things are possible.” Why does it help? How can you apply this in your life? In your prayer life?
Saturday – Psalm 148-150; Romans 11:34-36
The concluding doxology “for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever amen” is not only a statement of hope, but an expression of praise. Why should our prayers be filled with praise? Are yours? Why or why not? How can we grow in our desire to praise our heavenly Father?
