But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
All information is at our finger tips. We have no need for memory. But information alone does not transform. As the words of God take root in our souls they gain the power to transform us.

As you read about God, how he has revealed himself, and his ways, take a few minutes to consider these questions.
- What connects with you or stands out today?
- What does this say about God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) and how do you respond to that?
- How does this relate to all areas of your life–relationships, work, rest, neighborhood, etc?
Each day, prayer is focused around a word. Some suggestions are given for how you could pray, but allow the Spirit to guide you based on the word for the day as well.
Monday: Thank God for something good in your life today.
Tuesday: Give any worry or anxiety you have to God.
Wednesday: Pray for a friend, neighbor, or coworker who is struggling.
Thursday: Pray for someone who doesn’t know Jesus.
Friday: Pray for God to intervene in an injustice in our world.
Saturday: Pray for another church in our city. (If you don’t have one come to mind keep your eyes open for one as you’re driving around!)
Sunday: Intercede for someone who is a part of our church.
To live life with someone we have to interact with them and spend time together. It is no different with God. As you connect with God remember that others are doing this with you today. It is a way we are the body of Christ together.
