Open Heaven 1 August 2020 Saturday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Topic: Prayer For Your Community/Neighbourhood

Memorise: That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets: – Psalm 144:13

Read: Romans 12:15-16 (KJV)

15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

Hymn 18: My Faith Looks Up To Thee

My faith looks up to thee,
thou Lamb of Calvary,
Savior divine:
now hear me while I pray,
take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day
be wholly thine.

May thy rich grace impart
strength to my fainting heart,
my zeal inspire;
as thou hast died for me,
O may my love to thee
pure, warm, and changeless be,
a living fire.

While life’s dark maze I tread,
and griefs around me spread,
be thou my guide;
bid darkness turn to day,
wipe sorrow’s tears away,
nor let me ever stray
from thee aside.

When ends life’s transient dream,
when death’s cold, sullen stream
shall o’er me roll,
blest Savior, then, in love,
fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
a ransomed soul.
