Day 3 of 21 Days Of Prayer

April 10, 2024

In the uncertain times it seems we are sometimes living in, when the turmoil of the world seems to surround our every move, and when we find ourselves sailing on unfamiliar seas, it is an inspiring comfort to know we can rely on our God. In fact Simon Peter once remarked

John 6: 68 Lord, to whom shall we go?

He was basically pointing out that he and the disciples, and us for that matter, really do not have any other options. He is it!

Our Provider

God is our provider today,

tomorrow and always.

Psalm 139: 7-10

Where can I go from your Spirit?

     Where can I flee from your presence?

If I go to the heavens, you are there;

     if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,

     if I settle on the far side of the sea,

even there your hand will guide me,

     your right hand will hold me fast.

Heavenly Father,

just as Your Spirit moved over the waters

when the earth was without form

…move over our homes and lives.

Stir deep into our waters, creating order

that can come only from You.

Reign supreme over our time and our use of it.

We will praise You

in the new sense of calm and tranquility

You have created in our homes.


(adapted from

“Come To The Waters” by Joyce Rupp)

Looking Back

On April 15, 1775 just four days before the Battle of Lexington, the Massachusetts Provincial Congress, led by John Hancock, declared, "In circumstances dark as these, it becomes us, as men and Christians, to reflect that, whilst every prudent measure should be taken to ward off the impending judgments ... the 11th of May next be set apart as a Day of Public Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer... to confess the sins ... and to implore the Forgiveness of all our Transgressions.

May God bless our prayer journey together
