Today’s Prayers:

1. A PRAYER FOR MY LIFE:

Father, Thank you that you hear my prayers and that they matter to you. Today I pray that I would walk in confidence knowing that you are walking with me every step of the way.

2.  A PRAYER FOR MY CHURCH:

Father, I pray for all the parents who attend Summit. I ask that you would give them grace, love, patience, wisdom, and spiritual guidance in moments of great joy as well as in times of trial.

3.  A PRAYER FOR THE KINGDOM:

Father, I pray that your love would flood our community, our city and the entire world. Let love be practiced at all times; let it break down the barriers of hate and division that threaten to destroy. Let your spirt enter places and relationships and situations even where it seems impossible.

Today’s Scripture: John 5:13-21

3 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

16 If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that. 17 All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death.

18 We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. 19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. 20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.

21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.
