    一個感恩的禱告!
    A prayer of thanksgiving!


    馬太福音 11章20-28節(NCV)
    20 那時,耶穌責備那些他曾在那裡行過許多神蹟的城,因為它們不肯悔改:21 “哥拉遜啊,你有禍了!伯賽大啊,你有禍了!在你們那裡行過的神蹟,如果行在推羅和西頓,它們早已披麻蒙灰悔改了。22 但我告訴你們,在審判的日子,推羅和西頓所受的,比你們還輕呢。23 迦百農啊!你會被高舉到天上嗎?你必降到陰間。在你那裡行過的神蹟,如果行在所多瑪,那城還會存留到今天。24 但我告訴你們,在審判的日子,所多瑪那地方所受的,比你還輕呢。”

    25 就在那時候,耶穌說:“父啊,天地的主,我讚美你,因為你把這些事向智慧和聰明的人隱藏起來,卻向嬰孩顯明。26 父啊,是的,這就是你的美意。27 我父已經把一切交給我;除了父沒有人認識子,除了子和子所願意啟示的人,沒有人認識父。28 你們所有勞苦擔重擔的人哪,到我這裡來吧!我必使你們得安息。

    Matthew 11:20-28 (MSG)
    Next Jesus let fly on the cities where he had worked the hardest but whose people had responded the least, shrugging their shoulders and going their own way. "Doom to you, Chorazin! Doom, Bethsaida! If Tyre and Sidon had seen half of the powerful miracles you have seen, they would have been on their knees in a minute. At Judgment Day they'll get off easy compared to you. And Capernaum! With all your peacock strutting, you are going to end up in the abyss. If the people of Sodom had had your chances, the city would still be around. At Judgment Day they'll get off easy compared to you."

    25 Abruptly Jesus broke into prayer: "Thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth. You've concealed your ways from sophisticates and know-it-alls, but spelled them out clearly to ordinary people. Yes, Father, that's the way you like to work."
    Jesus resumed talking to the people, but now tenderly. "The Father has given me all these things to do and say. This is a unique Father-Son operation, coming out of Father and Son intimacies and knowledge. No one knows the Son the way the Father does, nor the Father the way the Son does. But I'm not keeping it to myself; I'm ready to go over it line by line with anyone willing to listen. “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me.


    1. 我們每人都有這時刻! 不過是可以迅間改變!
    We all have those moments! But it can change quickly!

    希伯來書 12章15節(NCV)
    你們要小心,免得有人失去了 神的恩典;免得有苦根長起來纏繞你們,因而污染了許多人;
    Hebrews 12:15 ERV
    Be careful that no one fails to get God's grace. Be careful that no one loses their faith and becomes like a bitter weed growing among you. Someone like that can ruin your whole group.

    學習讓想法變成禱告
    Learning to make thoughts a trigger to prayer.

    帖撒羅尼迦前書 5 章16-18節(NCV)
    要常常喜樂,不住禱告,凡事謝恩;這就是 神在基督耶穌裡給你們的旨意。
    1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 (MSG)
    Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.

    2. 感恩的禱告會帶來更大的想法
    The prayer of thanksgiving brings big perspective.

    詩篇 28章7節(NCV)
    耶和華是我的力量,是我的盾牌;我的心倚靠他,我就得到幫助;所以我的心歡樂。我要用詩歌頌讚他。
    Psalm 28:7 TPT
    You are my strength and my shield from every danger. When I fully trust in you, help is on the way. I jump for joy and burst forth with ecstatic, passionate praise! I will sing songs of what you mean to me!

    3. 來到耶穌的恩典裏!
    Come back to the grace zone!

    馬太福音 11章28-30節(NCV)
    28 你們所有勞苦擔重擔的人哪,到我這裡來吧!我必使你們得安息。
    29 我心裡柔和謙卑,你們應當負我的軛,向我學習,你們就必得著心靈的安息;
    30 我的軛是容易負的,我的擔子是輕省的。”
    Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG)
    “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
