“Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you, declares the Lord.”
Jer 1:8

Meditating on Jeremiah 1 & 2

Bless the Lord who

  • knew you before He formed you in the womb
  • is the spring of ‘living water’ that meets all our needs

Thank God for

  • being the only One worthy of worship
  • not abandoning us, despite our straying from Him
  • the sacrifice of Jesus who makes our relationship with Him possible

Ask forgiveness from God for

  • being distracted from His Kingdom by things of this world
  • doubting His love, power and promises
  • ignoring the plight of the sick, suffering and sorrowing (name those known)

Petition God to

  • help those affected by disasters eg in Greece and in the USA
  • help those fearful of the future for whatever reason
  • help those in areas of our own land where there is a resurgence of Covid-19

Remembering that

  • although we are weak ‘jars of clay’, God’s Spirit is within us
  • His grace is sufficient for us, for His power is made perfect in our weakness

In Jesus’ name we pray,
Amen
