A PRAYER for the Week
by Christine Wentzel
Dear Father in Heaven, we kneel before you in grief over the way we have softened our consciences on sin. Forgive us for the way we weigh each one from not-so-bad to the very bad. They are all worthy of the sentence of death. We fall on the grace you have given us through the life, death and resurrection of your Son, Jesus Christ. By His wounds we are healed. By His resurrection we have eternal life. Increase the shock to our consciousness over all sin for Your name's sake, for our life's sake and for the sake of those influenced by our actions. In Your Holy Spirit's name we pray, amen.
Prayer from the Mountainside
by April Cooper
Heavenly Father, I love you, Lord, my strength. Thank you for loving me. And, thank you for your love that guides, teaches, and corrects me. Help me to love you with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my strength, and with all my mind. In your name I pray Jesus. Amen.
