Lord, in order to be with you, I need you to show me how to ‘create desert’ in the midst of my ordinary life.

(Adapted from ‘Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day by Peter Scazzero).
Isaiah 43: 18-19

In the month when we remember those killed or injured in war, let us pray for lasting peace. ‘The Prophet Isaiah paints a vivid picture of a time when all nations will be at peace, when there will be no more tears and pain, no weapons or division and justice will prevail.’ (Follow the Star 2019).
Deuteronomy 7: 9
‘It is good to prepare for Christmas, to remember the promises of God, his coming in Jesus and celebrate by sharing love with family and friends.’ (Follow the Star 2019).

Please pray that we may focus on God and what he is doing as we enter the New Year. ‘New Year’s resolutions give us hope and direction but keeping them is not always easy. If we’re not careful, we can find ourselves quickly getting off track.’ (Follow the Star 2019).
