Yesterday was another great joint service. Thanks to everyone who participated and served in order to make it happen. Who knew Teresa, Glenn and Andy had such pipes and amazing dance moves! That joint choir may have to make another appearance in the future.
As we begin a new week, I want to pass along a prayer that may help you as you Sit with Jesus this week. It is a prayer which asks the Lord guard and keep those who trust not in their own strength, but in the mercy of the Lord. We are always tempted to trust in the things we can see and touch, but the scriptures always call us back to the only one who can truly keep us safe. I hope that this prayer is helpful for you this week.
Prayer for the Sunday closest to September 7
Grant us, O Lord, to trust in you with all our hearts; for, as you always resist the proud who confide in their own strength, so you never forsake those who make their boast of your mercy; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
