Song of Solomon 2:1 & 14- As a lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. My dove in the clefts of the rock, In the hiding places of the mountainside, Let me see your face. Let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.

Song of Solomon 8:7 – Many waters can’t quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man would give all the wealth of his house for love, he would be utterly scorned.

Partakers Friday Prayers!

14th September 2012

We pray together and when Christians pray together, from different nations, different churches and different denominations – that reveals Church unity! Come! Let us pray and profess together!

An ancient prayer of Anselm

Lord, because you have made me,

I owe you the whole of my love;

because you have redeemed me,

I owe you the whole of myself;

because you have promised so much,

I owe you my whole being.

~

Moreover, I owe you as much more love

than myself as you are greater than I,

for whom you gave yourself and to whom you promised yourself.

I pray you, Lord,

make me taste by love what I taste by knowledge;

let me know by love what I know by understanding.

~

I owe you more than my whole self,

but I have no more,

and by myself I cannot render the whole of it to you.

Draw me to you, Lord, in the fullness of your love.

I am wholly yours by creation;

make me all yours, too, in love.

(Anselm 1033-1109)

Key Verses

Hosea 1v2 – When Yahweh spoke at first by Hosea, Yahweh said to Hosea, “Go, take for yourself a wife of prostitution and children of unfaithfulness; for the land commits great adultery, forsaking Yahweh.”

Hosea 14:9 – Who is wise, that he may understand these things? Who is prudent, that he may know them? For the ways of Yahweh are right, and the righteous walk in them; But the rebellious stumble in them.

Summary

Hosea preaches to Israel 755 – 710 BC. Israel is externally a nation that is prosperous and growing, but internally is morally corrupt and committing spiritual adultery by serving other gods. Hosea marrying an adulterous wife who is a prostitute illustrates this.

Old Testament

Book of Lamentations

Lamentations 2:5 – The Lord has become as an enemy, he has swallowed up Israel; He has swallowed up all her palaces, he has destroyed his strongholds; He has multiplied in the daughter of Judah mourning and lamentation.

BAM – Jeremiah

Old Testament

Book of Jeremiah

Summarised in 1 Minute

Key Verses

Jeremiah 7:23-24 – but this thing I commanded them, saying, Listen to my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people; and walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you. But they didn’t listen nor turn their ear, but walked in their own counsels and in the stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, says Yahweh, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

Summary

The book of Jeremiah is from the period 627 – 580 BC, before, during and after the exile. Jeremiah prophesies mainly to Judah, then the surrounding nations and Babylon. Everyone despises him, but through his sermons and signs he faithfully declares that surrender to God’s will is the only way to escape God’s judgement. God will make a new covenant with all people.
