In the conversation for Sunday, August 13, 2017, Pastor Stuart Nice shares with us that adoration is integral to the prayer life of a Christian. Adoration is what helps us to focus our lives in a Godward direction. When God is in focus, the rest of our lives are in focus.
New Adventures in Prayer: The Magnetic Pathway
Sacred Reading 00:00-20:00
“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,”
Matthew 6:9 (NIV)
A note about the recording of the Sacred Reading:
The reader will pause between each of the four readings. The pauses have been left in the recording so that the listener can experience the rhythm of the gathering and even participate in the reading.
When I am in trouble, I call out to you
because you answer me.
No god is like you, O Lord.
No one can do what you do.
All the nations that you have made
will bow in your presence, O Lord.
They will honor you.
Indeed, you are great, a worker of miracles.
You alone are God.
Teach me your way, O Lord,
so that I may live in your truth.
Focus my heart on fearing you.
I will give thanks to you with all my heart, O Lord my God.
I will honor you forever.
Psalms 86:7-12 (GW)
