And on the seventh day God finished the work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all the work he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all the work that he had done in creation. - Genesis 2: 2-3
Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. - Exodus 20:8
On this day God, I offer myself to you. Take away any need I have to be busy. May I be present to the people I love, disengage from work, and remember that you are the God of love, whose burden is light. Amen
To rest and connect with the value of recharging.
Over the next 21 days, Aldersgate UMC is invited into an intentional time of prayer for ourselves and our community, You will be receiving a daily email (FaceBook blasts too!) with scripture, questions, prayer, and a daily challenge to use during your personal prayer and devotional time. The prayers used will come from a new resource by Justin LaRosa, a UMC Deacon from Hyde Park UMC in Tampa FL. The resource is called “the Jesus Challenge” - 21 Days of loving God and Neighbor. Some other prayers will be adapted to include specific prayers for our Aldersgate community.
