WASH ONE ANOTHER’S FEET

 “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.” John 13:14

Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the beautiful example the Lord Jesus Christ gave us of how we should live our lives. You gave us an example of how to serve one another and taught us to wash one another’s feet.

You taught us again and again that you are never going to deviate from your process. Even though we may not always understand that process, as the coronavirus spread demonstrates, may we gladly consent to it, so we may see you bring life out
of death.

Forgive us, Lord, when we are too proud to wash one another’s feet. Forgive us for being too busy or too arrogant to kneel before our teammates with this humble action. Forgive us when we have admired stories about you in the Bible but have refused to imitate your actions towards those you have placed around us.

Help us to be ready, after your example, to humble ourselves before our brothers and sisters; to be willing to do the simplest, dirtiest or most inconvenient tasks for them, and to prefer and honour the least of them above ourselves.

May we decrease in all we say and do, so Christ’s new life may increase in us. May our lives be lived out in love, truth, humility and grace, so that Christ may be seen in us, as we die to self and live to him.

Heavenly Father, thank you for the example of godly living and holy behaviour seen in the life of the Lord Jesus. Help us to walk as you walked and live as you lived ... in spirit and in truth, in humble obedience to your voice, in total dependence on your provision, and in grateful thanksgiving for all that you have done for us.

Thank you in Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

PLEASE PRAY:

West Africa

For the Lord to move the West African church to see her crucial role in bringing hope and healing to a world that needs Jesus. Pray for 50 units of West African workers, fully supported and sent out through West Africa Missions Office (WAMO). Currently, there are 11 units and 8 appointees. 

For believers to be consecrated first and foremost to Christ, with faith unshakeable by the waves of uncertainty. For our missionaries to be found making disciples who are in turn consecrated wholly to Christ.

For more people to turn to Christ. For geographical, social, political and spiritual barriers that are holding communities back to be overcome, so that many will find courage to answer God’s call and step out of the darkness into his marvelous light.

For leaders in this region to understand the times and know what should be done, like the men of Issachar. Pray for the God of peace to equip them in everything good for doing his will. (I Chronicles 12:32, Hebrews 13:20-21)
