0929 Prayer 禱告

撒母耳記上 15:20-22

『掃羅對撒母耳說:「我實在聽從了耶和華的命令,行了耶和華所差遣我行的路,擒了亞瑪力王亞甲來,滅盡了亞瑪力人。百姓卻在所當滅的物中取了最好的牛羊,要在吉甲獻與耶和華你的神。」撒母耳說:「耶和華喜悅燔祭和平安祭,豈如喜悅人聽從他的話呢?聽命勝於獻祭;順從勝於公羊的脂油。』

1 Samuel 15:20-22

But I did obey the Lord,” Saul said. “I went on the mission the Lord assigned me. I completely destroyed the Amalekites and brought back Agag their king.  The soldiers took sheep and cattle from the plunder, the best of what was devoted to God, in order to sacrifice them to the Lord your God at Gilgal.” But Samuel replied:“Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LordTo obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.”

萬軍之耶和華我們的神,你喜悅我們聽從並順服你的話語,勝於獻祭和公羊的脂油。若我們懷著敬畏感恩的心,獻祭給你,這是你所悅納的,若是我們內心沒有忠心和誠實,只圖敷衍塞責完成某項任務,你必不能悅納,所做的也是徒勞!鑒察人心的神,求你使我們的心意更新而變化,察驗何為你所喜悅的事,因你本不需要我們的供給,你所悅納的是我們的心!主啊,今天我們願立定心志,把我們的身心向你獻上,當作活祭,聽從並順服你的話語,依照你的吩咐行,蒙你悅納。禱告奉主耶穌基督的聖名,阿們!
