The Practice of Prayer - by Bryan Johnston

The Practice of Prayer - by Bryan Johnston

     I love the sound that a basketball makes when it swishes through a net, the sight of the rock passing perfectly through the orange rim, and the satisfaction of making a shot in the game of basketball. Hours and hours of practice are required in order to accomplish this task on a consistent basis. A beginner needs to learn the basic form and hand positions in order to accurately shoot a ball. This requires training your muscles to put to memory this proper form. Next the player must learn how to use ones entire body, feet, legs, arms, hands, and eyes, working in sync with each other to skillfully shoot the ball into the air with perfect backspin, arc, aim, force, and direction toward the goal. With practice, repetition, and coaching the skill is attained. The task becomes natural and the benefits are joyfully received.

    As disciples serving in love we have practices that give glory to God and benefit our faith in God. Our practices shape and inform our ability to serve God and others. We have the benefit of participating together through prayer, singing, sharing God’s word, eating together, and meeting each other’s needs. When we gather together as the body, we learn how to perform these tasks with the purposes of drawing our hearts toward God. Individually we are encouraged to make these practices a part of our daily rhythm of life.

    Today we will focus on the practice of prayer. Join us in prayer as we address God through faith, acknowledging God’s presence, confessing our sins confidently to the one who will forgive, thanking God as the creator and giver of all things, and asking God to act on our behalf and our loved ones. Allow our prayers to point your heart toward God. Make our prayers a model of how you practice coming before God each day. We hope our practice of prayer in worship will inform your daily practice of talking to God, and that your daily practice of calling out to God will inspire our times of corporate prayer each Lord’s day.

    Let us come to love the sound of heads bowing, hearts opening, and voices speaking to God. - Bryan Johnston - nbcoc@hotmail.com - churchofchristnb.com

Sung with Love - by Bryan Johnston

Sung with Love - by Bryan Johnston

The practice of singing praises to God has been a rich blessing in my life as a follower of Christ. The songs of the church have kept my heart filled with God. Singing as an act of worship has been a great tool for keeping my heart pointed toward Christ. The blending of voices in proclamation of our faith and the harmony of hearts worshiping as one body has profoundly informed by walk with the Lord.


     My choir teacher in high school would say she could tell which kids had been raised in the church because they came to her knowing how to read music and how to sing parts – soprano, alto, tenor, or bass. Participating in singing songs in church can help one learn how to sing with musical precision but it is not the quality of the sound of the music which makes singing worship. Singing becomes worship when the love of God flows from the heart of the believer to


God through the vessel of the voice. The gift of singing has its greatest impact to proclaim the praise of God when it is propelled by love. (Click READ MORE below for the rest of the story)

Rejoice! Christ is born! - By Bryan Johnston

Rejoice! Christ is born! - By Bryan Johnston

“4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.” Luke 2:4-7

 

O holy night the stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new glorious morn
Fall on your knees O hear the angels' voices
O night divine O night when Christ was born
O night divine O night O night divine!


Hark the herald angels sing "Glory to the newborn King! 
Peace on earth and mercy mild God and sinners reconciled"
Joyful, all ye nations rise Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim: "Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark! The herald angels sing "Glory to the newborn King!"
Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing, And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.


Joy to the world, the Savior reigns! Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.


Rejoice! Christ is born! The Savior is here! Jesus is Lord! Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year! – Bryan Johnston
