7月29日靈修禱文

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

1Timothy 2:1, 3-4

Thought

Upon returning from visiting Iraq, I asked a pastor friend to pray for the persecuted pastors in Iraq. This pastor told me that he felt strong resistance in his heart and did not want to pray for Iraq. I told him not to worry about Iraq but to focus on listening to Jesus’ heart everyday. One month later, he told me that each time he tried to listen to Jesus’ heartbeat, he could hear, “Iraq, Iraq, Iraq.....”He became a faithful prayer warrior for Iraq.

Prayer

Dear Jesus, You are not willing that any should perish but all should come to repentance. When one of the smallest ones suffers, You share his pain. Some followers of Christ wisely turn Daily World News into prayers for all people asking You to be merciful to those who are on the news knowing You care for all people and have inscribed them on the palm of Your hands. [Isaiah 49:16] Help me to turn every news item into a prayer and may my heart be burdened with what burdens Your heart. Amen.
Rev. James Chuang

我 勸 你 , 第 一 要 為 萬 人 懇 求 、 禱 告 、 代 求 、 祝 謝 ;這 是 好 的 , 在 神 我 們 救 主 面 前 可 蒙 悅 納 。 他 願 意 萬 人 得 救 , 明 白 真 道 。

提摩太前書 2:1, 3-4

思想

我曾前往伊拉克,回來時,請一位牧師朋友為該國受迫害的牧者祈禱。這位牧師對我說,由於他內心很抗拒,故不欲為該國禱告。我告訴他,不要理會這個地方,只須每天集中聆聽耶穌的心意。一個月後,他對我説,他每次嘗試聆聽耶穌的心意時,都聽到「伊拉克,伊拉克,伊拉克....」他自此成為一位忠心為伊拉克祈禱的禱告勇士。

禱告

親愛的耶穌,你不願任何人滅亡,乃願人人都悔改。即使最小的一位受苦,你都分擔其痛苦。一些跟從基督的聰明門徒,把每日的國際新聞看作祈禱事項,為受難的世人禱告,求你憐憫他們,因知你關心世人,將他們銘刻在你掌上(以賽亞書49:16)。請幫助我把新聞變作禱告事項,讓你心所記掛的,也成為我心牽掛的。阿門。
