Prayer4UKToday 23rd Sep 2018

Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name Y@HOVAH TSIDKENU LORD our Righteousness Jer. 23:6 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.

Cabinet Meeting on Monday

God is our refuge and strength,
A[a] very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,

Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the [b]midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah.
[Ps. 46:1-3]

We praise and thank You Father God that You are our refuse and strength, that You have the Nation of Britain in the palm of Your hand and You are directing everything that happens to this Nation. So we do not fear and we trust You to lead us every step of the way.
  
There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the [c]tabernacle of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she shall not be [d]moved;

God shall help her, just [e]at the break of dawn.
[Ps. 46:4-5]

We pray for the Cabinet meeting on Monday when the Brexit deal to be struck with the EU will be discussed. As Your word declares we trust You to help this Nation with the Cabinet agreeing on the Brexit deal that You have prepared. Help each minister to be guided by Your Holy Spirit to know the right plans You have established for this Nation and agree together on the deal to be presented to the EU.
 
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
[Ps. 46:6-7]

Jehovah Tsidkenu The LORD my Righteousness You are with us and whatever other Nations will do to attack us or divert us from following the truth You will protect us and guide us on the path You have chosen for us.
    
Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;

He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.
[Ps. 46:8-9]

Jehovah Rohi LORD our Shepherd You have always protected this Nation and we know that no weapon formed against this Nation shall prosper and every tongue which rises against us in judgment You shall condemn. (Is. 54:17)
1Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
[Ps. 46:10-11]

Help us Father God to be still in Your presence and exalt You among the Nations and in the earth. We pray in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Day 50

Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree. Let me get you something to eat, so you can be refreshed... Genesis 18:4-5 (NIV)

RADICAL HOSPITALITY
This story of Abraham and Sarah’s welcome is a model of hospitality. When he notices three strangers on the horizon, Abraham is recovering from his recent circumcision, resting in the midday sun. Yet he runs to greet these unknown travellers, welcoming them to stay for refreshment. He orders the fattest calf to be slaughtered. Sarah bakes cakes, and together they prepare a feast for their guests. Abraham stands by to serve and converse with them, and before long he and Sarah discover they are not the hosts after all. It is their guests who came to deliver a gift – the message of a long awaited son. The hosts are now guests – the tables are turned. And this is a model for our own hospitality to strangers today. Do we welcome those who are far off – unknown or unnoticed visitors to our homes and churches? Are we willing to be their guests also – to sit and eat in their places? When we reach across a divide in a moment of radical hospitality, we can find ourselves welcoming not only the stranger, but Christ himself.

PRAYER
Father God, we know that you are the great reconciler of all things. We pray that we would see with your eyes, notice your image in unlikely people and reach out to them with your hospitality. Ask God to show you, then take action.

ACTION
What does radical hospitality look like in your context? This week, who could you welcome to your home or your church?
