本週經文Scriptures詩篇1081-612-13 Psalm

1 神啊,我心堅定;我口要唱詩歌頌! 2 琴瑟啊,你們當醒起!我自己要極早醒起! 3 耶和華啊,我要在萬民中稱謝你,在列邦中歌頌你! 4 因為,你的慈愛大過諸天;你的誠實達到穹蒼。 5 神啊,願你崇高過於諸天!願你的榮耀高過全地! 6 求你應允我們,用右手拯救我們,好叫你所親愛的人得救。

12 求你幫助我們攻擊敵人,因為人的幫助是枉然的。 13 我們倚靠 神才得施展大能,因為踐踏我們敵人的就是他。

1 My heart, O God, is steadfast; I will sing and make music with all my soul.  2 Awake, harp and lyre!  I will awaken the dawn.  3 I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples.  4 For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.  5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.  6 Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered.

12 Give us aid against the enemy, for human help is worthless.  13 With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.

本週禱告事項

    去年法國有541起反猶太事件,比起2017年上升了百分之74,一些人認為這是因為極右派份子散佈反猶太言論所導致的。求神的福音改變法國,讓人在基督裡用愛取代仇恨。

    In France 541 anti-Semitic incidents were reported last year, up 74 percent from 2017.  Some have suggested that this increase is a result of growing anti-Semitic messaging within far-right groups.  Pray that God would transform this nation with the Gospel, replacing hate with love and uniting the people in Christ.

     

    在東南亞的老挝人口約七百萬,它的政治與文化都深受小乘佛教的影響。基督徒在該國只佔人口的三個百分點。求神幫助老挝基督徒在他們的社區中做光做鹽,為基督影響改變他們周圍的文化。
