The 4th Sunday after Pentecost
July 2, 2017

Psalm 150
Matthew 15:21-31

“Psalm 150 IS the end of THIS book; it is also extending a call to praise beyond its covers.

Unlike other psalms, this one does not give specific reasons to praise God. It says, praise God, wherever you are, with whatever you’ve got, and start out “just because.” Praise Him in the good times; praise Him in

the bad times. Let everything alive give praise!”

Pilgrim Prayer Challenge – Week Five

5 Weekly Encouragements for Praying Pilgrims!

5. Prayer: It matters.

“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” James 5:16

Are you a believer in Jesus? If so – guess what? You fit the description of the person in the above verse. You are righteous. You are clothed in the righteousness of Christ, and are able to stand boldly before the Lord of All. Don’t doubt it! Your prayers are powerful; your prayers are effective; your prayers count; your prayers are heard.

Is there a person, or a cause that is tearing at your heart today? Do you know of someone in the throes of suffering and are desperate to help? Today – pray fervently, pray boldly, pray confidently and without despair – even if the words are as simple as “Lord, have mercy” or “Lord, I trust You.” It matters.

It’s week 5! Don’t give up – keep praying, and soon daily prayer will be as natural as breathing in and out.

**Helpful Hint: If you tell someone you will pray for them, don’t just say it – do it! Stop what you’re doing and pray.

The Second Sunday after Pentecost
June 25, 2017

Psalm 30
Luke 7:24-29

“Psalm 30 is a song of thanksgiving written after David  had perhaps come through a terrible illness. It reminds me that, after coming through the storms of life and begging for help from God, we, too, need to sing our thanks to Him. Sometimes, it’s a matter of thanking Him before the storm is completely over…”
