Good Morning Living Stones Family!!
We give thanks to God for giving us yet another day. We are living in challenging times of natural disasters, illnesses, losses and list is endless but we have been granted this day; not by mighty but just God’s grace. Let us be glad and rejoice.
“You are the glorious morning, You are refreshment and peace. You are the sounds as the dawn breaks, You are the rose that smells sweet. You are the Lord, my creator, You are the wonder of life. You are the great words of wisdom, I read them and fill up inside. You are the wonderful sunrise, You are restorer of hope. You are the air that we breathe now, You are the warm winter coat. You are the Lord, my creator, You are a love without end. You are all grace and forgiveness, I stand loved and free as your friend. “

The Word of God
Psalm 100:1-5 KJV
“Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: Come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: It is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; We are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, And into his courts with praise: Be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”
(KJV: King James Version)
Word of Wisdom
The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is to express the same delight in God which David received and rejoiced. Let’s all take time today not only to read Psalm 100 but to pray Psalm 100, for this Psalm is an excellent basis for our Prayers of Adoration and Thanksgiving. It is a Psalm that recognises the importance of knowledge in our Faith. What a wonderful and marvellous thing it is to truly know that the Lord is God. To know that we belong to God and that we are held within God’s care. It doesn’t matter what we are going through if we trust God and give Him praise, He will see us through.
Praising is our key. When we remember that unexpected and undeserved gift (the gift of our salvation) let’s give praise. As we lift our hearts, minds, and voices in praise to the Lord, our perspective changes. Our faith is encouraged and strengthened to the possibilities in God. When we make a sacrifice of praise, choosing to thank God regardless of how we are feeling now, we are lifted up. As we praise God, as we bless Him with our thanksgiving, God pours out His blessing on us. May our day be filled with Praise and Thanksgiving.
Let Us Pray:
Almighty God, we ask for your presence in our day in all things we will do today in our body and mind with gladness and thanksgiving. May all we do be according to your plans and we be your true ambassadors for your name to be glorified. In your great love, keep us near you this day. Grant that in all our ways and doings we may remember that you see us, bless us and in your mercy we receive your Grace to know and perceive what things you would have us to do, and give us strength to do the same; we give you honour and praise through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Blessings. Have a Wonderful Day.
