Trivia Question

Last week’s Question: In Matthew 5:28 Jesus warns us that …

  1. We can lose our eyesight.
  2. We can commit sin from a distance. (8)
  3. Just looking at another person can get you in trouble. (13)
  4. Marriage vows are easily forsaken.

The correct answer is 2, we can commit sin from a distance. We had 21 players last week and our winner of our $10 Amazon Gift Card is … Bob B.!

This week’s Question: In Matthew 6:12 Jesus suggests that being forgiven is connected to …

  1. God’s ‘Amazing Grace.’
  2. The priesthood.
  3. How we forgive others.

Bible Number

Today’s Bible Number is pretty ordinary. Click the video below to hear more about this number.


You may pray this out loud if you wish:

“Dear God, so many of Your promises are special to us right now:

  • You give strength to the weak. (Isaiah 40:29)
  • I don’t have to fear because You are with me. (Isaiah 41:10)
  • I can depend on Your love, always. (Isaiah 54:10)
  • You provide wisdom when I ask You for it. (James 1:5)
  • You know the plan of my life. (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • I am free in Christ. (John 8:36)
  • You will meet all of my needs in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)

Help Your people, and ME especially, to lean heavy into Your promises and to know their power in my life. From time to time, and more often than I like, people’s promises have disappointed me. I confess Lord, I have not kept well all the promises I have made and some have been disappointed in me. But, today is a new day. You’re interested in my todays more than my yesterdays. Thank you.

Help me this week to be a doer of Your word, and not just a polite listener. Move me forward in my faith-walk with You. Be as gentle or pushy as You need to be … I truly want to follow You more closely.

For my family and friends, I pray for safety and a prosperous future. For our planet, peace. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Pastor Alan will be LIVE on our Facebook Page at 11:00 am. We will share your prayer requests (submitted from the check-in form above) and enjoy being together via Facebook.

Closing Prayer

“Oh God, as we click away from this ‘virtual service’ help us to remain connected tightly to You most of all. Help my Bible reading and prayer times continue to mold me into the person You want me to be. Bless me, my family, my church, our nation, and strangers everywhere who are wondering ‘what’s next.’ In Jesus’ name, amen.”
