From writings of the prophet Micah:

and to walk humbly with your God.

God of all that is,
We are thankful for another day of life! May we discover the joy that is in each moment. Let your peace rest in our hearts. We pray for _______________.
Forgive us for not standing up for justice, not always being loving and kind, and thinking it’s all about us. As disciples, may our witness be courageous and clear. Give us wisdom to discern what is right and then do it. Help us to transform your world by being a community at Fairlington that welcomes, nurtures and serves. Amen.
Fairlington PrayerPoint: January 2017
-> Scripture to Read
The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, ”Look, here is the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi” (which translated means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come and see.”

In what one specific way did you/will you follow Jesus today?
How did/will your words or actions point anyone to Jesus?
