Opening Prayer: (Read by a Single Voice)
Heavenly Father, we are grateful for and blessed by your presence, both here among us today and in every moment of our lives. We admit that we sometimes get distracted and do not give you our full attention. We also admit that sometimes we choose to ignore your presence, your Word, your Will. For these, we ask forgiveness. We desire to be persons who give you our undivided attention. We desire to be a church that is focused on you, living out your will for us. We desire to be your kingdom builders, but to do so we know that we need to be focused on your plans, not ours. Help us to have an undivided attention, an undivided focus, and an unwavering spirit that we may be your light in the world and help others to know you. We pray these things today, through your Spirit and in the name of your Son. Amen.
Reading Scripture: (Take Turns Reading)
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
1 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. 2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. 3 Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. 4 For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
Hebrews 3:1-4 (NIV)
5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
Romans 8:5 (NIV)
- How do you keep your attention focused on God? What challenges do you face when trying to stay focused on God?
- How has giving your attention to God been a blessing to you?
Close in prayer for one another and then with these words: (Read by a Single Voice)
16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Colossians 3:16-17 (NIV).
