Living Prayerfully

This week at Pinehurst UMC we will be reading pages 14-20 from A Wesleyan Spiritual Reader.  You are encouraged to read from either the book or the links below.

Weekly Scripture Sentence:

[Jesus] was praying in a certain place, and after he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord,
teach us to pray" (Luke 11:1, NRSV).

Daily Scripture Readings

John Wesley’s Sermon on "The Means of Grace"

Hymn Portion:

Pray without ceasing, pray (your
Captain gives the word)
his summons cheerfully obey and call upon the Lord;
to
God your every want in instant prayer display,
pray, always, pray and never
faint, pray without ceasing pray.
(Charles Wesley, "Soldiers of Christ, Arise," verse 3).

Scripture Affirmation:

The prayer of faith will save
the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins
will be forgiven…. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective (James 5:15-16, NRSV).
