Day 4 – Having the Mind of Christ, Contributed by Deaconess Jean Jackson for Deaconess Eleanor Banks
Meditative Thought: Through prayer and reading scripture, we receive God’s guidance
For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.
I Corinthians 2:16
Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord.
For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the why of life.
Jesus said, “ I came so that they could have life—indeed, so that they could live life to the fullest.
Lord Hear Our Prayer for:
Loving Father, hear our prayer that we might have the mind of Christ and that we will be the recipients of your grace, wisdom and love. Heavenly Father, we pray for words of encouragement to be more like your Son, Jesus Christ as He has demonstrated so unselfishly Your love. Father, we are thankful because His Life here on earth showed us the depths of Your love for us. You sent Him so that we might be saved for He conquered the grave and has given us the perfect example of how we are to live with our fellowman. Help us to examine our walk so that we illuminate the most precious gift of life; our salvation. You said in your Word that we could have life and have it more abundantly if we remain in You. Your Word also teaches us that we are to be steadfast and immoveable and always abounding in the Word. Father, we are grateful for your generosity and the life of Jesus for He has saved us from eternal damnation. We pray that you will walk with us and guide us so that our lives show others our relationship with you. Help us to lift others up as they move through this journey called life. Empower us to share with new believers the importance of reading Your Word and having the mind of Your Son, Jesus Christ, and we will be so very careful to give you all the glory. Amen, Amen and Amen.
