Over these next two weeks, the focus of our Sunday worship will be on “Failure, Forgiveness & Grace”. Each of us has experienced failure, we have sinned, BUT God…. As we come to him with confession, He forgives and through His grace redeems and restores. Praise God.
May this be true in your heart and life.
The following prayer speaks so well to the work of God in restoring that which is broken and damaged. May God answer this prayer in each of our lives.
From all that is broken, let there be beauty.
From what is torn, jagged, ripped, frayed,
let there be not just mendings but meetings unimagined.
May the God in whom nothing is wasted
gather up every scrap, every shred and shard,
and make of them new paths, doorways, worlds.
· Pray for leadership of our Christian Ed. program as decisions are made concerning programming this Fall with the uncertainties of Covid. Lord, continue to lead!
· Grief is a difficult road and different for all who walk it. Thank you for your continued prayers for the many spouses, children, and family members of our church community who are grieving the death of a loved one. Invite God to bring these individuals to your mind; invite Him to guide as to how you may reach out with support, care and love. Pray for God’s peace and comfort in the life of each individual.
· Continue to pray for Kara as she concludes her sabbatical within the next three weeks. May God provide physical and spiritual rest and renewal through His presence and place a fresh vision of His call within her heart and mind. We pray Father that you would wrap your arms of love around her.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
