"Starting of Something New"

Prayer Calendar (doc) (Pdf)

“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts…now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” 1 Corinthians 12:12, 27


Psalm 87: 4-6 (NLT) “I will record Egypt and Babylon among those who know me, also Philistia and Tyre, and even distant Ethiopia. They have all become citizens of Jerusalem…When the Lord registers the nations, he will say, ‘This one has become a citizen of Jerusalem.’”

Psalm 90: 16-17 (NLT) “Let us see your miracles again; let our children see your glory at work. And may the Lord our God show us his approval and make our efforts successful.”

Ephesians 2: 19-22 “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone. In Him, the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in Him, you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit.”

Proverbs 3: 4-5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

1 Corinthians 12: 22-25 (NIV) “..those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are un presentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the body and given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.”
