Friday, September 9

Opening Prayer: Almighty God, open Your Word to me today as I read, and open my heart as I seek to understand and obey all that I hear, that I might be guided by You and You alone. Amen.

Read: Genesis 32:22-32

Reflect: Who is Jacob wrestling with? Have you ever had a similar experience? Has there been a time in your life when you refused to let go of the Lord in spite of any pain you were experiencing? How has such an experience change you?

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself.

Hymn: “Just As I Am”
Just as I am, without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou biddest me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot,
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

Just as I am, tho’ tossed about
With many a conflict, many a doubt,
Fightings and fears within, with-out,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

Just as I am-Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve.
Because Thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

Just as I am! Thy love unknown
Hath broken every barrier down.
Now to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

Closing Prayer: Preserve my life according to your word, preserve my life in your righteousness. (Psalm 119:37, 40)
