On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day, and he prolonged his speech until midnight. (Acts 20:7 ESV)
А дня першого в тижні, як учні зібралися на ламання хліба, Павло мав промову до них, бо вранці збирався відбути, і затягнув своє слово до півночі. (Дії 20:7 Ukrainian)
O LORD my God ~ thank you, dear Father, in heaven for this new Lord’s Day on which followers of Christ the Lord meet in sweet communion. Bless Christians around the world with opportunities to share our faith. Protect our brothers and sisters who live in nations where they are considered enemies by some of their own countrymen. Open doors of opportunity to speak the truth in love to those willing to hear, believe and obey the good news message of salvation. Awaken Christians in nations where they have complete freedom to assemble, yet they seek time off from the righteous fellowship of believers. Smother the influence of those who falsely persuade others that the Lord’s Supper is not an essential matter for the followers of Christ. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
