And some of us are back in local lockdown already ...
Let's be sure to pray about the development of local lockdowns in our area. Clive looks like either being shut down in the Llanelli lockdown or very close to the edge of it and others of us may be in the same situation soon.
Let's also pray for one another's walk with the Lord as we head into what looks like being a challenging winter. He Who is in us is greater than he who is in the world, so let's be sure to stick especially close to Him!
We aim to continue to meet in person as long as and whenever we can, but please be assured that we will keep the DIY Sunday Service Sheet going for the benefit of those who can't be with us in person ... for whatever reason.
From 3-4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon we are hoping to run drive-in church using a radio system on the (very clean!) farm yard at Llwynmeredydd, Myddfai where there's been a faithful work over the years but where opening the local village chapel hasn't been possible since COVID.
Pray for a good turn out and a good experience not only with the technology but also with the Lord ... drive-in church will be a new experience for many and it's easy to be distracted by that from the matter in hand!
Our worship this week is led by Michael Eldridge - Here's a prayer we can sing for our outreach to Myddfai this week
This is NEXT week's Word for the Week video ... please watch it, pray that the Lord uses it to do some good and consider to share on your social media to your friends!
Please continue to pray for those who exercise leadership in this land, for the governments in Westminster and in Cardiff, for our local authorities, for the Queen and the royal family and for those the Lord has put in positions of spiritual leadership and authority
Let's continue to pray for all whose lives have been touched by the physical and mental health impacts of the COVID epidemic, for doctors, nurses, carers, teachers, shop workers and all on the front lines serving our communities
Please pray for the Church in our land, that we would be faithful in serving the Lord, serving one another and reaching out to our communities realistically in our own age and generation
And let's not forget to pray for our friends and families that they might all know, love and find joy in serving the Lord
27 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and the seed of beast. 28 And it shall come to pass that as I have watched over them to pluck up and break down, to overthrow, destroy, and bring harm, so I will watch over them to build and to plant, declares the LORD. 29 In those days they shall no longer say:
“‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.’
30 But everyone shall die for his own iniquity. Each man who eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be set on edge.
The New Covenant
31 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, 32 not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares the LORD. 33 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”
35 Thus says the LORD, who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the LORD of hosts is his name: 36 “If this fixed order departs from before me, declares the LORD, then shall the offspring of Israel cease from being a nation before me forever.” 37 Thus says the LORD: “If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth below can be explored, then I will cast off all the offspring of Israel for all that they have done, declares the LORD.”
38 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when the city shall be rebuilt for the LORD from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate. 39 And the measuring line shall go out farther, straight to the hill Gareb, and shall then turn to Goah. 40 The whole valley of the dead bodies and the ashes, and all the fields as far as the brook Kidron, to the corner of the Horse Gate toward the east, shall be sacred to the LORD. It shall not be plucked up or overthrown anymore forever.”
Let's encourage one another and commit one another to God's grace in the sure hope of the certain future of the people of God
But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
22 Be merciful to those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear – hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.
And Now ...
24 To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy – 25 to the only God our Saviour be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and for evermore! Amen.
