Scripture: … My sons, do not be negligent now, for the Lord has chosen you to stand before him and serve him, to minister before him and to burn incense (2 Chron.29:11).
Proclamation: We shall be sanctified by the truth, which is the Word of God.
Prayer: Father, we pray for the church in South Africa, that she will yield to the cry of Your Spirit to consecrate and set herself apart for You. Give her a renewed hunger and thirst after Your written Word, that she would no longer be negligent in standing before You, in serving You, in ministering before You and giving her life as a living sacrifice to You.
Blessing: Heavenly Father, bless the church in South Africa with strength and a willingness to consecrate herself and set her heart towards You and Your Word.
Something practical to do today: Take time to pray and ask God for a hunger after His Word to return to your heart. Begin by reading from the first chapter of one of your favourite Bible books today. This might be the year in which you can read through the whole Bible for the first time, or once more if you have done it before!
