PRAYING COLOSSIANS 1:15-20

kathylarkman,

If you are visiting today, we're thrilled to have you with us. We come here to worship God by singing, preaching the Bible and praying together. God is the highest priority in our lives because through Jesus we have forgiveness from our sins and the hope of a new life spent with Him!

  • Please switch off your mobile phone when you come in to the hall.
  • Please remember to park in one of the town car parks; not along Priory St.
  • Please ensure your child/ren do not play on the stage, up in the balcony or in the graveyard either before or after the service.
  • We have large print bibles available for anyone who might need one. Please ask one of the ushers.

Pray the Word photoOur Lord, 

We praise You because Your Word helps us to see who Christ really is. Thank you for the centrality of Christ! As we pray the Word today, open our eyes more and more to the reality that the Christian life IS CHRIST. Cause our hearts to know and understand that CHRIST is supreme over EVERYTHING. Thank you that Christ is the visible image of You, our invisible God. Thank you that we can know that Christ existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through Christ, You created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. It is amazing to realize that Christ made the things we can see and the things we can’t see- such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. O Lord God, everything was created through Christ and for Christ; that Christ existed before anything else, and Christ holds all creation together. Thank you Lord, that we can see through your scripture, that all the details of our lives find their goal in Christ. Only Christ is the one who can fix and reconcile the world to You. 

Praise you Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three in one!  

christ is supremeAgain we rejoice! Christ is the head of the church, which His body. He is supreme over all who rise from the dead. Christ is first in everything. We praise you Lord for You in all Your fullness was pleased to live in Christ. Through Christ You reconciled everything to Yourself.
It is so amazing! You made peace with everything in heaven and on earth
by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
What a perfect and wondrous plan!

Capture our hearts dear Lord through your Holy Spirit; help us to uphold Christ’s supremacy with our words and attitudes. Help us to take hold of the fact that everything in heaven and on earth is related to Christ and can only be understood through Him. Make it so dear Lord. AMEN
