On Beside The Burn this week, we turn to Daniel and find out how we can live in this world while remaining citizens of the Greatest Kingdom.
Join me each week-day for a short devotional video including a bible reading and prayer to encourage us as we enter 2022.
In case you missed it or want to listen again here is the bible reading and sermon from Sunday.
This is an excellent retelling of the story of Daniel, explaining how the various kings fit into the story. I highly recommend watching it. It lasts about an hour and a half and I will include the link each day this week so that you can watch it a section at a time if you don’t have time for the whole film. A higher quality version is available with a Amazon Prime subscription or can be rented from Amazon for £1.99.
Here is another film of the story of Daniel.
I haven’t watched this one yet so I can’t comment on the quality.
Here is an overview of the book of Daniel from the Bible Project, as ever an excellent summary.
Let’s Pray For Moderator
Pray for the health of our ministers and leaders across the church. Physically, mentally and spiritually, we are all in need of self-care. Pray for the Refresh programme in early February, which will encourage this for people in leadership roles.
Worship: Directed and set free
‘Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me.’ Psalm 119:133.
As we worship today ask God to direct our daily living and set us free from sins that overshadow our lives.
Naomi Keefe (global mission worker, Brazil)
Pray for Naomi as she settles back to life and work in Brazil after spending time in Ireland over Christmas. Pray for God’s guidance for Naomi in the various aspects of her ongoing work and witness. Pray too for good health and safety for Naomi at all times.
Pray for the Christian community in Yith Pabol near the border with Sudan who were recently attacked by a group of Islamic extremists – at least 28 people were killed and over 50 houses were burnt down.
