This Week's Congregational Prayer:

I thank you, Lord Jesus, for opening the way to salvation, through you’re obedience to your Father’s way of the cross, and through the power of your resurrection. I confess my sin to you, Lord, and I pray for your Spirit’s power to fill me with strength as I repent, as I turn from sin and turn to you. May my life and witness be a testimony of your love and grace, a testimony that reaches the hearts of people, to bring glory to you. Amen.
