Scripture Focus: 2 Peter 1.3
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
This week of Thanksgiving, we have focused on giving thanks, looking at ancient and modern poetry, writings, and prayers, offering praise and thankfulness to our God. May we continue in thankfulness, praying the prayer of joy below, as we approach the first Sunday of Advent this weekend.
Reflection: My Cup Overflows :: Worldwide Prayer
A Prayer of Devotion from the USA
My cup overflows! My cup overflows! Lord God you have blessed me so abundantly! You have lifted me up, and loved me, and forgiven me, and blessed me so richly.
O loving Lord God, continue to bless me, that I might continue to bless others.
O compassionate Lord God, as my cup overflows with love and kindness and all kinds of riches, help me to see how I might share these blessings and your love with the rest of your children.
O Gracious Lord God, help me to see how extravagantly my cup overflows, and to see how I can direct that overflow to do your work.
Oh Mighty Lord God, give me the courage and strength to follow Christ’s example, and to share the abundance of my blessings, now and forever.
My cup overflows! Praise God! Praise the Son whose life shows us the true meaning of grace, servanthood and loving stewardship.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
