美國國慶禱文

剛過去的周六是美國國慶(國家獨立日),我們為這個國家感恩的同時,也需要為我們的國家去禱告。以下是我昨天領會眾一起作的祈禱。如果你錯過了昨天的祈禱,也許你在閱讀以下的禱文,你可以在心裡與我一起為美國祈禱。

親愛的主啊,

 沒有比體驗從罪和死亡中獲得自由更可貴的感覺,這是你通過耶穌基督給我的。今天,我的心和我的靈魂可以自由地贊美你。為此,我非常感激。

 在這個獨立日,我想起了所有那些以你兒子耶穌基督為榜樣,為我的自由而犧牲的人們。請你別讓我忘記,我身體上和靈魂上的自由,不是理所當然的。願我永遠記住,有很多人為我的自由付出了很高的代價。

主啊,今天,祝福那些為我的自由奉獻生命的人。滿足他們的需要,照顧他們的家人。

親愛的父親,我非常感謝這個國家。也感謝所有為建設和保衛這個國家所做出的犧牲的人。感謝你們為我們在美國所享有的機會和自由。請幫助我,不要把這些祝福視為理所當然。

 但是,天父,我們在這個國家仍然面臨很多挑戰。罪惡、種族衝突、政治鬥爭、疫情持續、經濟打擊、我們祈禱主在這困難時刻,幫助我們更加團結,所有人都能享受自由由、公平和公義。求主加力給領袖們,為國家作智慧及利民的決定。

 主啊,求你幫助我的生命能榮耀你。賜予我今天成為別人生命中的祝福的力量,讓更多人能在認識耶穌基督中找到真正的自由。

我們以耶穌的名祈禱。

阿們。

 

你的牧者,

梁廷益

代禱日程

親愛的匯點人:

耶穌教導門徒主禱文之後,應許他們「凡祈求的,就得著;尋找的,就尋見」(路加福音 11:10)。主禱文的內容是保證成就的,我們需要做的就是求。雖然主禱文的內容要等到主再來才會完全成就,然而,在每一個世代當中,主禱文都可以亦都曾經部分成就。所以,我們見到這一個世代的人離棄神,不要喪志灰心。神聽我們的禱告。透過禱告,就是這一世代也能夠回轉!

Word of Leung - Rev. Ting Leung

An Independent Day Prayer

This past Saturday was Independence Day, and as we give thanks for our country, we also need to pray for our country. Here is the Crosspoint daily prayers posted yesterday. If you missed yesterday’s prayer, you may read the following prayer and join me in a prayer for the United States of America.

Dear Lord,

There is no greater feeling of liberty than to experience freedom from sin and death that you provided for me through Jesus Christ. Today my heart and my soul are free to praise you. For this, I am very thankful.

On this Independence Day, I am reminded of all those who have sacrificed for my freedom, following the example of your Son, Jesus Christ. Let me not take my freedom, both physical and spiritual, for granted. May I always remember that a very high price was paid for my freedom. My freedom cost others their very lives.

Lord, today, bless those who have served and continue to give their lives for my freedom. With favor and bounty, meet their needs and watch over their families.

Dear Father, I am so thankful for this nation. For all the sacrifices others have made to build and defend this country, I am grateful. Thank you for the opportunities and freedoms we have in the United States of America. Help me never to take these blessings for granted.

Yet father, we still face many challenges in this country. Crime, ethnic conflict, political struggle, ongoing epidemic, economic downturn, we pray that The Lord will help us unite in this difficult time, and that all can enjoy liberty, justice and freedom. We ask you Lord to empower the leaders to make wise and beneficial decisions for the country.

Help me to live my life in a way that glorifies you, Lord. Give me the strength to be a blessing in someone’s life today, and grant me the opportunity to lead others into the freedom that can be found in knowing Jesus Christ.

In Jesus’ name, I pray.

Amen.

 

Your Pastor,

Ting Y Leung

PRAYING FOR ONE ANOTHER

Dear Crosspointers,

After teaching his disciples the Lord’s prayer, Jesus promised them “ask and they will receive”, “seek and they will find.”  The content of the Lord’s prayer is guaranteed to fulfill.  What we need to do is to ask.  While the complete fulfillment of the Lord’s prayer awaits the return of Christ, the Lord’s prayer can be and has been partially realized in every age.  Therefore, let us not lose heart when we see people of this generation turning away from God. God listens to our prayer.  And with prayer, even this generation can be turned around!

Blessings,

Pastor Gideon Lee
