Jesus tells us that only one thing is necessary: sitting at His feet and taking in His every word (Luke 10:38-42). You can find a space here to do just that. With weekly walks through Scripture, creating space to encounter the living Jesus in the middle of your real life just got a little easier. Come and join a community seeking to fix their eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith (Hebrews 12:2).
14. Deliver us From Evil
The power of evil is at play in our world, in our lives. The good news is God's power is greater and He offers Himself and His action on your behalf, to deliver you from the power of evil, now and for eternity.
13. Listen: Forgive us as we Forgive
Are you having a hard time forgiving that person?
Look to the cross. Receive again the immeasurable gift of God's mercy forgiving your uncalculable debt.
"Forgive as the Lord forgave you." Colossians 3:13
1 Corinthians 11:23-26
12. Give us our Daily Bread
Does God care about your daily, physical needs?
"Although he already knows all things, He invites you to tell him your needs, to petition Him in prayer, to invite Him into your needs. Will God provide everything you ask for? No, maybe not. But He will always provide HIMSELF to you as you are vulnerable with Him in prayer. And at the end of the day, isn’t that our greatest need - the deep aching hungry hole in us crying out for the bread of life?"
Join us as we continue our walk through the Lord's Prayer. May we continue to learn who God is, why we can trust Him in prayer and why we pray in the first place.

10. Listen: Your Will Be Done
What is God's will? Are you willing to say "Yes" to it?
Today, we listen to two prayers Jesus prayed on the night He was arrested; One a bold declaration of God's desires, the other a face-in-the-dirt wrestling surrender kind of prayer. What do we learn of God's will in these prayers? Am I willing to surrender to God's will as Jesus does?
A few more passages giving us a view of God's will:
1 Thessalonians 5:18: Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
Hebrews 10:10: For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time.
Ephesians 1:9 God has now revealed to us his mysterious will regarding Christ—which is to fulfill his own good plan.
Revelation 4:11: “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
9. Listen: Your Kingdom Come
Hidden within the folds of The Lord's Prayer is an invitation, a call to response. We pray, Your Kingdom Come, and the Spirit of God whispers back, "Will you let my Kingdom come in you? Will you be willing to carry the reign of God in your heart, mind, soul, and body first? Will you be willing to submit to the reign of Christ in the place you inhabit?"
We wonder, what DOES the Kingdom of God, the reign of God, look like in my real life?
Today, we listen to Jesus' Sermon on the Mount and listen for the ways He's calling us to live in HIS way. As you listen, remember, "with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26)
Thanks for taking on this experiment because I’m planning to use your podcast as a place to meet with the “one” and listen and process the stories and passages you will read. Excited to keep listening! 😃
