Day 4 Sacred Season 2015

DAY 4.  12th June The Burning bush Ex 3:1-6   

Nelson Varcoe    Adelaide  Congress, South Australia

There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush.  (Exodus 3:2 NIV)

Basis of Union: Paragraph 4: Through human witness in word and action, and in the power of the Holy Spirit, Christ reaches out to command people’s attention and awaken faith;

 

This story of Moses is about an amazing moment when Moses’ life is transformed.  It goes on to become a transformation of the whole people of Israel.   I wrote the following song about that event.  God appeared to Moses. 

I hope as you reflect on the words of the song it speaks to you too… about us and our nation.

But Lord set me on fire, Yes Lord set me on fire

  • Pray for yourself.  
  • Pray for your family.  Pray for your church. Pray for your nation.  Pray for this country. 
  • Cry out to God for this to become a lived and living experience for each of us… and for our family, our church, nation and our country. 
  • That the Holy Spirit will bring God’s holy fire, that God will appear to us, that Jesus will be Lord.  
  • That we all will find heavenly healing.

Come Holy Spirit  

Come Father God

Come Lord Jesus

Please set us on fire!

 

Pray for:  Unitingworld partner –  Methodist Church in Zimbabwe

Pray for the Uniting Church as we continue to respond to the Royal Commission into child sexual abuse in our church schools.  Pray for courage and strength to speak the truth in a way that will somehow help survivors.  The Uniting Church has asked Commissioner McClellan from the Royal Commission to speak with at the Assembly in Perth, but Terence tells us  we’re not sure whether that will come off yet.  Please pray for healing for those affected not only from abuse within our church but all churches in Australia.
