REC 100 Days Prayer Meeting Day 99 - God rewards you! Why? How?

           



Silence

1.   Put on your “brakes” and stop for a moment of silence
2.   Wait for God. Breathe deep for God's peace and feel His presence. Exhale your worries.

Praise and Thanksgiving

1.   Think through your day, all the times that made you smile
2.   Thank God for all those moments, and for all those people
3.   Sing a song to praise God (you are welcome to use "Father, I adore you" which I have been singing every morning for the past 20 years or your own choice to praise God)

          Father, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.
          Jesus, I adore You, lay my life before You, how I love You.

Confession and Repentance (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method https://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html

1.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to shine on you that you are able to discover your sins and be willing to repent:


     “Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God and having Jesus as my Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”



2.  Through the Holy Spirit, examine yourself for a short silence and then pray:

     "Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sins to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gifts to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

3.  John Stott's daily prayer of Christlikeness (Christopher J.H. Wright, Cultivating the fruit of the Spirit. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2017, 13)

(Please click this link to see how God used John Stott to change my life:https://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/2009/07/

           "Heavenly Father, I pray that this day I may live in your presence and please you more and more.

             Lord Jesus, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you.

             Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."


    
    The link to today's Time with Abba passages:   http://api.pastoralcareschool.org/twa/
    Time with Abba passages: (Psalm 18:7-15, Exodus 10:1-12:13; Matthew 20:1-28; Proverbs 6:6-11)

    Today's key passage:
     The Lord has dealt with me according to my righteousness;
    according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me.
21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord;
    I am not guilty of turning from my God.
22 All his laws are before me;
    I have not turned away from his decrees.
23 I have been blameless before him
    and have kept myself from sin.
24 The Lord has rewarded me according to my righteousness,
    according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.
   
           Psalm 18:20-24

Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage we have just read. Offer this time to Jesus as you listen to him. 
   
     My Listening
    The topic I received from Jesus isGod rewards you! Why? How?

 God rewards you? Really? Of course! Take a look at how God rewarded Moses and Aaron and you know that it is very true! 


     So, how can you receive God's reward? 

1. God deals with you and rewards you(Psalm 18:20, 24), because:
    a. You are righteous and clean (Psalm 18:20)
    b. You have kept His ways  (Psalm18:21)
    c. You are blameless and keep yourself from guilt (Psalm 18:23)
    d. You obey and observe His command  (Exodus 12:24)

2.  How would God rewards you :
     a. From spiritual blindness to your spiritual eye opened by Jesus that you are able to see what Jesus wants you to see  (Matthew 20:33-34)
     b. Your church will become a House of Prayer  (Matthew  21:13)
     c. You church will be able to exercise healing, freeing and saving (Matthew  21:14)
     d. You will greatly experience the power of prayer  (Matthew  21:21-22)  

   May we pray for our church on the 99th  day of our 100 days Prayer Meeting now:
 
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be willing to follow you, listen and obey to you and your command so that we can receive your rewards. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.


      Reflect on these questions:
     1. What inspiration have you received from today's catch and what have you heard from Jesus now?
      
      2.  What is your next step to be more closer to Jesus?

親親爸父, 唱詩歌頌
 
今日親親親爸父經文連結: http://api.pastoralcareschool.org/twa/
親親爸父經文:(詩篇 18:16-24出埃及記 12:14-13:16; 馬太福音 20:29-21:22;  箴言 6:12-15)  

20 耶 和 華 按 著 我 的 公 義 報 答 我 , 按 著 我 手 中 的 清 潔 賞 賜 我 。
21 因 為 我 遵 守 了 耶 和 華 的 道 , 未 曾 作 惡 離 開 我 的 神 。
22 他 的 一 切 典 章 常 在 我 面 前 ; 他 的 律 例 我 也 未 曾 丟 棄 。
23 我 在 他 面 前 作 了 完 全 人 ; 我 也 保 守 自 己 遠 離 我 的 罪 孽 。
24 所 以 , 耶 和 華 按 我 的 公 義 , 按 我 在 他 眼 前 手 中 的 清 潔 償 還 我 。
詩篇 18:20-24

現在讓你有一個安靜的時刻,給聖靈一個空間,讓主耶穌可以藉着剛才讀過的經文,親自對你説話。


 我的聆聽  
     今日我從主耶穌領受的主題是:  神賞賜你! 為何? 如何?

神賞賜你? 真係? 梗係! 你看看摩西和亞倫便知道是真的啦! 那麼要怎様才可以得神的賞賜呢?

1. 神報答你, 賞賜你(詩篇18:20, 24), 因為:
    a. 你是公義及清潔的(詩篇18:20)
    b. 你遵守了他的道 (詩篇18:21)
    c. 你在他面前作了完全人遠離了罪 (詩篇18:23)
    d. 你遵守他的命令 (出埃及記 12:24)

2.  神如何報答你, 賞賜你:
     a. 由屬靈眼瞎,被主開眼,看到主要你看到的 (馬太福音 20:33-34)
     b. 你的教會成為祈禱的家 (馬太福音 21:13)
     c. 的教會可以施行醫治,釋放,拯救  (馬太福音 21:14)
     d. 你大大經歷祈禱的大能 (馬太福音 21:21-22)  

願望我們在今天以馬內利堂百日祈禱會的第99天能為我們的教會這樣的祈禱:


    親愛的主耶穌
    求你使我們願意每天跟隨你,聽你的話,得着你的賞賜奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。
  
 省察問題 
 1. 今日的信息對你有何啓發?  主耶穌現在對你説甚麽話?

 2. 下一步是什麼行動?
   
     家庭角落
找機會與家人一起分享今日的領受。

    The link to today's Time with Abba passages:   http://api.pastoralcareschool.org/twa/
    Time with Abba passages: (Psalm 18:7-15, Exodus 10:1-12:13; Matthew 20:1-28; Proverbs 6:6-11)

    Today's key passages:
     20 Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him.
21 “What is it you want?” he asked.
She said, “Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom.”
22 “You don’t know what you are asking,” Jesus said to them. “Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?”
“We can,” they answered.
23 Jesus said to them, “You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father.”
24 When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers. 25 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Matthew 20:20-28

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
    consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
    no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
    and gathers its food at harvest.
How long will you lie there, you sluggard?
    When will you get up from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
    a little folding of the hands to rest
11 and poverty will come on you like a thief
    and scarcity like an armed man.

            Proverbs 6:6-11


Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage we have just read. Offer this time to Jesus as you listen to him. 
   
     My Listening
    The topic I received from Jesus isIn God's protection or by God's punishment

    Today's catch is simple and direct, almost everybody knows that, but most people don't care or too lazy to deal with that:
    1. God reveals His power and anger through His created nature
        Today's Psalm 18:7-15, David tells us how God shows His power and anger through His created nature

    2. In God's protection or by God's punishment
        Exodus 10:1-12:13 tells us the difference between "In God's protection or by God's punishment". To Moses and Aaron is to learn God's power one step at a time, but to Pharaoh is to suffer God's punishment one step at a time.

    3. Not to envy and strive for power, but to humble and give
        Today's Matthew 20:13-16,18,24 tells us the mentality of many Christians in the Church nowadays, just the same as Jesus' apostles two thousand years ago. And that is always thinking and saying "not fair", full of envy, jealousy, always want to get more and to become the top and first one!
        But, what Jesus teaches us is to learn of His model to be humble and to give so that the blood of His Cross cleanses us and gives us life!

    4. Do not be sluggard and sleep anymore
        Proverbs 6:6-11 gives us a serious warning that we can no longer be sluggard and have that "spiritual coma". We need to be in God's protection and not suffer by God's punishment!

   May we pray for our church on the 98th  day of our 100 days Prayer Meeting now:
 
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us not to be sluggard and in spiritual coma anymore but to wake up and be with you, in your protection and not suffer by your punishment. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.


      Reflect on these questions:
     1. What inspiration have you received from today's catch and what have you heard from Jesus now?
      
      2.  What is your next step to be more closer to Jesus?
