John 6:39 (lift up all…to God)

29 Apr John 6:39 (lift up all…to God)

Let’s welcome God every morning before work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which has snippets from Living Faith. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

This is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what He gave me, but that I should raise it [on] the the last day. John 6:39 (full readings)

Living Faith snippets: “[Jesus] embraces each person He encounters as an unrepeatable individual. Let’s not lose a minute today, not a precious second in frenetic activity, but instead be deeply attentive during the pauses between each appointment, each phone call, each meeting, each task, and lift up all our endeavors to God.” by Claire J. King

Faith Challenge: Let’s challenge each other to joyfully live out the Good News.
* NEW: “Place a stone on my desk…as a reminder of the consequences my speech or my silence can have. Holy Spirit, today may my words or my silence only be loving, only be true.” by Claire J. King

Pastor Don’s devotion: “It’s a beautiful day!!!”

* Let’s never forget the horrific reality of abortion (images)…#1 cause of death in America. Let’s courageously share ProLife Truth (John 14:6) to create social tension for exposing abortion’s unjust peace…rebuilding a Culture of Life (Matt 5:16) and setting the unborn free!

Our Prayers: Those who pray together stay together. Fasting ideas below.
* Prayer to end abortion, abused children, chastity, peace, our enemies, our troops, depression/ despair, prisoners, ProLife politicians, illnesses/injuries, jobs, natural disasters, addictions, Mike Castle (Nelda Alford cancer treatment), Bobby Aborn (wife Christi with medical issues), Carol Nesbitt (special intention), Stephanie Spader (special intention)

Faith Quote: “Holiness is an ever-timely demand. Men and women today feel an urgent need for Gospel witnesses of life.” by Pope John Paul II

Through Christ our Lord,
Phil 4:13

* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. ‘If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead.’
* Fasting: Let’s fast from things that take our eyes off Jesus (selfishness, bitterness, being so critical, impatience, gossip, excessive video games, etc) and take on things that fix our eyes on Jesus (selflessness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, patience, understanding, caring, helping, listening).
* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish’ (Blessed Mother Teresa).
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for unbelievers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service.
Let’s joyfully invite others to join our LIFE Group…Rich or Pat will gladly add them to the devotions distribution list (Mark 16:15)!
